The simplest question here is how the new builtin rules should be called.
I think that "GLOB". It it reasonable to make it take a wildcard, interpret
it relatively to the current directory, and return all the matches? The other
option is to take a target name, and then match filenames in the directory
given via "LOCATE". I don't think this latter option gives us anything, and
that the former should be taken. Other comments?
