Comments on this decision would be welcome.

Question: Is this part of the aggregation work that you doing that will not use ncml?
yes, at least it does not use NcML right now.

Comment: I really like these kinds of things in Java (e.g., their Date stuff) but for other languages they can be a pain. One way you can simplify implementations in other languages is to specify which parts you're actually going to use. Languages like C++ and Python can do this stuff - there's almost always a library out there - but it's nice to know how much users will need.

i agree. but the getPathMatcher() seems to have a clear spec, and at least it would be a clear reference implementation if it had to be ported. However, I need to study it closer.
