Binds and everything that would be affected use wild_match_per() now (well,
binds already did). There weren't really problems with '\' as far as I know.
Escape support is not appropriate in certian types of matching, and
(conviently) everything that needs escape support can use wild_match_per()
without problems. The only other solution I felt would be appropriate would
be adding yet another match function that did not support quoting, but after
reviewing the code I can see it would be pretty much pointless.
