    ....I'm not at all clear how that would extend to a more
    complicated wildcard pattern like a regular expression.

The person who added regular expressions would have to define how they
work with the various pathname functions.  There's no way that the
Common Lisp language specification can define that.

I'll respond to the rest of your message later.
