Description:
------------
I would love to see support for "/**/" in glob(). That pattern would match zero or more directories in the path, like in Ant.

Test script:
---------------
<?php

touch('style.css');
touch('script.js');
mkdir('dir');
touch('dir/reset.css');

foreach (glob('**/*.css') as $path) {
    echo $path."\n";
}

Expected result:
----------------
style.css
dir/reset.css

Actual result:
--------------
dir/reset.css

On non Windows systems, PHP's glob() is a wrapper over glob(3).
Is there any glob(3) implementation which supports /**/?
