>> Well, if glob() already lived in shutil, this decision would be a
no-brainer :) Having glob() in the glob module and globtree() in the
shutil module, though, looks a bit weird.
(I agree having a separate module for glob isn't ideal)

Would it be feasible to deprecate the 'glob' module, moving its functionality to shutil? In some future Python version, then, the module can be removed.

The same fate would go for fnmatch, I guess. There are too many modules lying around dealing with the same problems.

On a related note, the doc of glob explicitly mentions that it is implemented with os.listdir and fnmatch. Similarly, *if* the recursive glob gets accepted it should be implemented with walkdir (once that's in).
