Hm. Where, exactly, would it not be treated as one? You mean that, at

I'm not sure I follow that.
} Causing an error if the (#q) gets through to the pattern code would be

In fact, it should be no work at all? At the moment:
schaefer<501> setopt extendedglob
schaefer<502> echo foo(#q)bar
zsh: bad pattern: foo(#q)bar
} The natural rule for bareglobs is that they work if and only if they appear

} qualifier, but (#q*)(.) is two.
} The only hairy bit of implementing this is that we'll need an extra level

} don't think the rule of applying them `as if they appeared in a single

I agree with that, too. It should be treated as (#q/W,*W), I think. Just
distribute the ANDs over the ORs when combining them.
