You still haven't explained what your problem is with the idea of an
explicitly recursive glob (as both "rglob" and "globtree" suggest).

walkdir is not yet a module proposal, there's not even a PEP for it, and
it's in a very young state.

This issue has a working patch for rglob(), which is a single, obvious,
incremental addition to the existing glob module. If you want to discuss
walkdir, I suggest you do it in a separate issue.

(and, yes, rglob() can be reimplemented using walkdir later, if there is
a point in doing so)
