   File expansion would also occur, no ?

   By the way, does this occur to args given by set args ?
   Probably not, but I am not sure here.

   Sometimes it would be helpful to get the shell to expand the
args before passing them to the program, but
in other case you explicitly don't want this.

   If we add "--" option support
it would give a simple way of getting this shell expansion
as opposed to using 'set args' later.

   But this again prooves that there are really subtle issues here!
