Summary:  shell pattern support incomplete (-name option)

Original Submission:  man page says:
-name pattern
        Base of  file  name  (the  path  with  the  leading  directories 
removed)  matches  shell  pattern *pattern*.

But the shell patterns involving Brace Expansion (see the bash manpage) aren't 
supported.  Quick example:
$ touch drakx arts-explanation arts-bug-59184.patch
$ ls {drakx,arts}*
arts-bug-59184.patch  arts-explanation  drakx
$ find . -name '{drakx,arts}*'
