{} might be a good replacement for ? since AFAIU its planned use
doesn't depend on surrounding whitespace, but the problem is still
unsolved for *.  Currently the marked file names are substituted for
the * only if * is surrounded by whitespace.  But what if someone
wants to use the names of all marked files with * not surrounded
by whitespace, e.g.

! some_external_program --files='*'

or something like this?  Should we add already proposed {*}
replaced with file names unconditionally, not depending
on surrounding whitespace?
