This sounds like a good compromise between Paul's requirements and the
wish to have little manual work.

When you implement it, take a look at the gnulib-tool options:
  --avoid         to avoid a module despite a dependency,
  --copy-file     to copy a single file if you don't want to slurp the
                  entire module it belongs to.

When you upgrade to a newer version of gnulib, you should look not only
at the changes that were made in glob.in.h but also those in glob.m4.
