This change was intended to make ffap key bindings `C-x C-f'
(find-file-at-point) and `C-x d' (dired-at-point) behave exactly
as their standard conterparts without ffap loaded (i.e. `C-x C-f'
(find-file) and `C-x d' (dired)) in regard to wildcards.  I think,
if everyone agrees, we could add a ffap option to enable old
non-standard behavior of `C-x C-f' as you proposed.
