I'll go along with that, but we could just use a different value for errno
for the two different stages.  I think you are right though.  First open,
then read.

I would suggest we not support wildcards in the first release.  It
wouldn't mean any code to check for wildcards, just don't advertise that
they are allowed on NT/OS2.  If we decide we like them, we can implement
the same feature in a later release for all other platforms.
