OK, that's fair. Your solution does seem to be a backward-compatible way that practically should work well to cope with this case.
I was going to say "this new case", but the square-bracket problem is not new with glob rules: any filename can have square brackets in it, on Unix.
If we treat the authz format as its own format, that does make me wonder if there are any other limitations the current ConfigParser format is applying, that should also be lifted.
For example, if "@harry" is parsed as a reference to group name "harry", then is there also a way to specify a username that is literally "@harry"?
In general, is there a programmatic transformation from arbitrary valid user names and paths to corresponding authz entries?
