1. That would require going out of the pathlib framework. I can do that but it's more of a mess because then I need to convert the results back to Path objects. 2. Not sure how I would use fnmatch, because I wouldn't want to give it the list of all files recursively, since that would be a long list of files (lots of files in ".git" folder that I want to ignore.) I want it to first ignore everything in the ".git" folder completely without going over all the files, and then include all the other files recursively.

What do you think about implementing functionality similar to the `find` utility in Linux in the Pathlib module? I wanted this today, I had a
to write to archive a bunch of files from a folder, and I decided to try writing it in Python rather than in Bash. But I needed something stronger than `Path.glob` in order to select the files. I wanted a regular expression. (In this particular case, I wanted to get a list of all the files excluding the `.git` folder and all files inside of it.
fnmatch https://docs.python.org/3.6/library/fnmatch.html wasn't sufficient for your needs?
