Globbing (was Re: HAMMER update 10-Feb-2008)

    I remember hitting the older 64K limit occassionally.  I resolved it
    by splitting my globbing up, e.g. instead of '*' I iterated a*-z*.

    Ultimately though the only guaranteed way is to use 'find' and xargs,
    and that wouldn't change whether we upped the limit or not.  So at
    the moment I am not contemplating upping the limit.
