Feature #5422: File.fnmatch != Dir.glob # {no,sets}

Hello,

The File.fnmatch methods do not support Dir.glob's set notation:

>> Dir.glob '{.g,t}*'
=> [".gem", "test"]
>> File.fnmatch? '{.g,t}*', 'test'
=> false
>> File.fnmatch? '{.g,t}*', '.gem'
=> false

Please add set notation to fnmatch() and make it equal to glob().

Thanks for your consideration.
