Yeah, I only discovered recently; it made me laugh at how cool it

I don't know that much either, I stole most of this from other files

@(...) is documented in the bash man page:

             @(pattern-list)

whereas @{...} doesn't appear there and doesn't work when I try it.

This line causes expansion of things like

    'svn ci -F -'

to not produce a list of options since -F takes a mandatory file name.
