Yes. We could call it
"root" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Root_%28linguistics%29) but in
this context it would be confusing. Also, it's not exactly the root
since as you point there can still be a remaining suffix.
There's "stem", too (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Word_stem). With the
same provision about not being the actual stem.

You mean for glob() (match() is just a regex-like matcher, it doesn't
do any I/O). Yes, I think we could add a `allow_recursive` argument.
Is there any other DoS issue?
