Ok, the diagnostic is overly-strict, because the NAME component should
be interpreted
as a string, as it's not a wildcard component. But, I trust you are
aware that an ANSI
Common Lisp implementation doesn't necessarily support wildcard-globbing of
files? SBCL does, so perhaps we should add such an extension to abcl as well.
