Hi. I am considering making bash glob expansion implement rational range
interpretation starting with bash-5.0 -- basically making globasciiranges
the default. It looks like glibc is going to do this for version 2.28 (at
least for a-z, A-Z, and 0-9), and other GNU utilities have done it for some
time. What do folks think?

I am in favor of the idea provided there is a way to change back to what is
now the default.

Also, the character order may be extended to use C.utf-8 instead of ASCII
to have an stable order for all UNICODE characters.
