Dir is often used to explore objects or modules interactively, which
means we need a very short syntax for this to be handy. Perhaps
something like this:
Making an utility function like this with glob or regex is of course
extremely simple. Anyone can do it for themselves, how ever they like.
What I am asking is if the need to filter the output from dir is so
common that it could warrant a change to Python?
