So, those users are lying or deluding themselves :-)

Globbing works fine with my versions of sh.   Not sure in what precise
way yours is broken.    The consistency arguments are pretty
subjective, at best.

Perhaps as a side-effect of skimming, I've missed your report on why
inventory doesn't do what you need.   Would you mind repeating it?
Perhaps it's a "user error" or perhaps there's a missing feature.

I'm just not clear on why the three have to be comparable in this
