Regular expressions are first of all a theoretical concept

Yes, I tried to account for that without getting into the theoretical details that I don't remember.

If we start nit picking, we should not mistake one of those syntaxes as the one and only real regular expression syntax.
Except that globs do not have the power required by a true (theoretical) regular expression. They can't express everything that a regular expression can.
