No. This was never documented to work, never intended to work, and will soon
not work if you'll show me where it does work. :-) It's much more important
to me to not treat any character specially, so any filenames can be
specified. If you want wildcard expansion, you can get it on the debhelper
command line.

Indeed. Point me at places it doesn't and I'll try to add it.
