Pathname expansion is supported as a general functionality. Corresponding matching specifications can contain special pattern characters besides other name components.

I would like to clarify the possibility if the placeholders could be handled in the way that they denote the only parts which should be preserved from a specified path (while the other text would be omitted).

How do you think about to support a pattern matching variant where anything from a file name will be deleted if a placeholder was not used there?
