Then why don't they work as extended globs if the extglob shopt is set
to off at runtime, from within the function, after it has been parsed?

I know, I understand the reason for this, and I even approve of it,
because after all, the use of extended globs is something the person
defining the function should worry about, not the person using the
function. Sadly, currently both have to worry.
