The problem is that I prefer the walkdir approach, because it solves a
more general problem and overall more useful. This is also why I don't
see how it makes sense to stop discussing it here and focus on rglob.
They are related, after all!

Anyway, I'm not sure what else I can add to the discussion. I'm
starting to repeat myself, which means that I should just shut up :)

I've stated my preference, and I understand and respect yours. So
let's just see what others think.
