Let's sumarize:

- windows does not hide dot-files
- FOR globbing or any other globbing does not have exclude pattern
- and there is no pattern to use file attributes
- let's say it: windows globbing is too simple to handle this case
(i would say Bash non extended globbing would be not sufficient).

So I don't see a possible solution for it, unless it is changing an extension,
moving somewhere else to move back, cooking file lists, performing globbing
ourselves, using Msys... etc.

just mine 2 cents......
