Personally, I would say no.
I find that the workarounds make the code very ugly. Then there is the
resulting inconsistency with other commands. Moreover, as the
weirdness occurs only with sudo, it is also very difficult to make
sure that we fix all that could go wrong and don't introduce any
unwanted side effects since globbing with sudo will be rarely used.
So I wouldn't do anything, but would also be fine with something small
that addressed the original problem, like your previous patch.
