I also turned on the (undocumented) 'bash --wordexp' mode (actually,
that happened in 4.1.12-5, although I failed to mention it at the time),
which allows the C library call wordexp() to now function.
From a user standpoint, why would one want to use --wordexp? What is the
effect of turning on this mode?
It's not meant to be used by users. It exists solely to be used by libc
(cygwin) as an implementation of wordexp(3).
