Hum. hum. hum... /me thinks.
You mean that I'm stuck into the command line without thinking of the
concept in general? You're saying that in the concept, we can use
wildcards? Hum hum hum. Then, let's think of another example, by taking a
more conceptual approach (remember: I only need to give you one example to
convince you):

Let's say I want to do something to a bunch of files, but I only want to
do the action until the file that matches a certain pattern.

<loop type="files" dir="[directory]" name="file">
	<check type="pattern" pattern="*qer.tar.gz">

I hope this will convince you. Or if it doesn't, then I hope you will
convince me :)
