Keep in mind that this will bomb out with 20,000 files in a given
directory, just like all other uses of wildcards passed to the shell.
You need to escape the wildcard and pass things through a "find ... |
xargs" command line, as I demonstrated earlier.
If you meant to quote the wildcard and protect it from evaluation
by the shell, you need to use single quotes and not double quotes.
