The Windows wildcard idea was rejected in the context of a faster
os.walk, not globbing.
The PEP is inaccurate: it gives the wrong Python-Ideas thread for
discussions on the wildcard idea. The wildcard idea is discussed in this
not in the thread given in the PEP. Well, I say "discussed", but it's
mostly ignored, with only a couple of comments.
There's somewhat more discussion on Python-Dev:
but it's mostly people just saying "-1 on wildcards".
I agree with this decision, for PEP 471. But I don't believe this is
relevant to the question of explicit globbing.
