I wrote this in a script for limited globbing:

if cd:
    toss = os.path.join(trashcan, os.path.split(i)[1])
    pwd = os.getcwd()
    toss = os.path.join(trashcan, i)

if toss[-1] == '*': 
    crumple = []
    if cd:
        l = os.listdir(cd)
        for i in l:
            crumple.append(os.path.join(cd, i))
        crumple = os.listdir('.')
    for i in crumple:
        if i.startswith(toss[:-1]):
