The string matching logic in sd_sdconf_id_match() in sd.c is odd and seems to cause a good bit of confusion.  In particular it does not conform to shell wildcard rules which I think is what most people would expect.

Can anyone point to why the current syntax and semantics were chosen?

Does anyone know a reason why it should not conform to shell wildcard rules? The alternative is full regular expressions, but that seems a bit overkill and possibly confusing as well.
