It has two parts. The optimization compiling expressions into one and the new
glob->regex translator. It is possible to take the optimization and use
fnmatch for the compilation. In fact the first version I posted did just
that, but there were some fixes to it later (mainly because there were no
tests for the ignore patterns in bzr and I only added them later).
