The former doesn't sound appropriate, because "glob" does not imply brace
expansion originally.

  $ case foo in f{oo,ar}) echo ok;; *) echo ng;; esac
  ng

  $ case "f{oo,ar}" in f{oo,ar}) echo ok;; *) echo ng;; esac
  ok

Brace expansion is a string to array conversion operation, and not used only for file names in shell scripts.

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.
