Good day, everyone.

I would like to suggest (or question) the support of a `nil` value for `sort` argument in `Dir.glob`.
I find this behaviour a bit surprising, here is an example:

```
irb(main):001:0> Dir.glob("brace/a{.js,*}", sort: true)
=> ["brace/a.js", "brace/a", "brace/a.erb", "brace/a.html.erb", "brace/a.js", "brace/a.js.rjs"]

irb(main):001:0> Dir.glob("brace/a{.js,*}", sort: false)
=> ["brace/a.js", "brace/a.js", "brace/a.html.erb", "brace/a.erb", "brace/a.js.rjs", "brace/a"]

irb(main):001:0> Dir.glob("brace/a{.js,*}", sort: nil)
=> ["brace/a.js", "brace/a", "brace/a.erb", "brace/a.html.erb", "brace/a.js", "brace/a.js.rjs"]
```

As you can see  `sort: nil` produces the same results as `sort: true` which is confusing
