Currently, the fnmatch module in Python does not operate like the Unix equivalent command. This is especially the case with patterns such as `dir/` which does not match directory path returned by `os` (which would be `dir`) and neither does the pattern match the underlying files and sub-directories. Adding these functionalities so that fnmatch matches it's Unix equivalent would make it much more powerful to use.

Glob is not useful since glob is a special case that matches only with the current directory paths rather than the a general purpose filename pattern matcher.
