;;; Commentary:
;; The globbing code used by Eshell closely follows the syntax used by
;; zsh. Basically, here is a summary of examples:
;; echo a* ; anything starting with 'a'
;; echo a#b ; zero or more 'a's, then 'b'
;; echo a##b ; one or more 'a's, then 'b'
;; echo a? ; a followed by any character
;; echo a*~ab ; 'a', then anything, but not 'ab'
;; echo c*~*~ ; all files beginning with 'c', except backups (*~)
;; Recursive globbing is also supported:
;; echo **/*.c ; all '.c' files at or under current directory
;; echo ***/*.c ; same as above, but traverse symbolic links
;; Using argument predication, the recursive globbing syntax is
;; sufficient to replace the use of 'find <expr> | xargs <cmd>' in
;; most cases. For example, to change the readership of all files
;; belonging to 'johnw' in the '/tmp' directory or lower, use:
;; chmod go-r /tmp/**/*(u'johnw')
;; The glob above matches all of the files beneath '/tmp' that are
;; owned by the user 'johnw'. See [Value modifiers and predicates],
;; for more information about argument predication.

This function almost fully supports zsh style filename generation
syntax. Things that are not supported are:
^foo for matching everything but foo
(foo~bar) tilde within a parenthesis group
foo<1-10> numeric ranges
foo~x(a|b) (a|b) will be interpreted as a predicate/modifier list

regular expressions, and these cannot support the above constructs.
