r398: * If DH_COMPAT=3 is set, the following happens:
- Various debian/foo files like debian/docs, debian/examples, etc, begin to support filename globbing. use \* to escape the wildcards of course. I doubt this will bite anyone (Debian doesn't seem to contain files with "*" or "?" in their names..), but it is guarded by v3 just to be sure. Closes: #34120, #37694, #39846, #46249
