When we originally added support for the "globbing" characters [] and {} we
did that becasue the URI syntax specifically has them special and they should
be encoded if wanted "literally".

But the days of a clear definition of what a URL is or should work, is long
gone. The option to disable the globbing is often necessary to use.
