No, I wasn't. I know the difference :)

That was exactly my point. Reading the fnmatch man page lead to the
glob man page, which pointed out that globbing != regex, but that
chatacter classes/ranges are part of POSIX.

Great. So, APR supports character classes. Does it also support
ranges? My cursory look at that file seems to indicate that it does.
If so, then why doesn't '[0-9]*' work in my svn:ignore ?
