    pathspec: support :(glob) syntax · bd30c2e4
    Duy Nguyen authored
    :(glob)path differs from plain pathspec that it uses wildmatch with
    WM_PATHNAME while the other uses fnmatch without FNM_PATHNAME. The
    difference lies in how '*' (and '**') is processed.
    With the introduction of :(glob) and :(literal) and their global
    options --[no]glob-pathspecs, the user can:
     - make everything literal by default via --noglob-pathspecs
       --literal-pathspecs cannot be used for this purpose as it
       disables _all_ pathspec magic.
     - individually turn on globbing with :(glob)
     - make everything globbing by default via --glob-pathspecs
     - individually turn off globbing with :(literal)
    The implication behind this is, there is no way to gain the default
    matching behavior (i.e. fnmatch without FNM_PATHNAME). You either get
    new globbing or literal. The old fnmatch behavior is considered
    deprecated and discouraged to use.
