It seems to me that this rule is confusingly implemented and

For example, the docs don't say this but paths are supplied in
"portable" format while patterns are expected to be "native" format.
How anyone can use this portably I don't understand.

Also, there appears to be a special case for when a slash is detected in
the pattern? Could that be described in the documentation? "do
something more complex" isn't really adequate. If you're doing
something "more complex" you really ought to tell us what it is.
