Yes!  My simple speed tests I ran the other day showed that the code was
a good bit faster than the default fnmatch on my system, and just barely
faster than the lib/fnmatch.c routine we used to include with rsync, so
I was satisfied that it wasn't going to cause anyone's rsync processing
to bog down.

The original wildmat code used a 4-character shiftwidth, and I just
never changed it.
