I don't think so. It's just that you wrote ``we'll need something
like'' your patch, so I looked at other (tiny) fnmatch implementations
already in use, I'm currently more familiar with the dietlibc code than
with dash's. Now I'm interested in fixing the dietlibc also.
Do you prefer your patch to work around glibc's fnmatch problem in dash?
