Right now, glob is marked LGPLv2+, but depends on readdir which is
LGPLv3+, which means glob effectively cannot be used in an LGPLv2+
program.  What is intended, that readdir should be relaxed to LGPLv2+,
or that glob should be tightened to LGPLv3+?  When considering that
question, remember that glob and readdir are both provided by the
LGPLv2+ glibc.
