Shouldn't the onus be on me, as the project maintainer, to accept that

that the probability of that being a problem is FAR less than the
current problems of maintaining the source file list.  Doing it
manually has already proven so error-prone as to cause significant
lost time.

The problem is not so much the crafting of wildcards as it is unintended "accidents" in the filesystem. For my own project I do have some bits which are based on wildcards and several times files have been bundled up which I did not intend to be included.
