I have to clarify this.

The new features of fnmatch and glob will only be available starting
with Cygwin 3.5.0, slated for end of 2023.

Any further 3.4.x versions will only contain bugfixes, not functional
enhancements.  So please don't expect this to work in 3.4.7.

So this dash version only makes sense if you install Cygwin-3.5.0
test releases on a regular basis.
