Hah nice! I'll noodle on this and figure out how to publicize it more. Your script would be very helpful as an example. Do you mind if I use it in the docs somewhere?

Please feel free.

Even a cursory mention of the ability at the end of the readme would likely help many. With a verbatim script and verbatim command using it helping many more. I only stumbled upon this feature with enough context to really get it in the Ubuntu man pages and I don't know if I ever would have gotten to the pre-glob feature to be honest.

I do believe that technically oriented non-programmers would be the biggest winners from more exposure around it.

Great! I filed an issue for it: https://github.com/BurntSushi/ripgrep/issues/1252
