Hey, are you calling me a Perl slut?!! :-)

Check in your Perl references for "file globbing". Since the
majordomo.cf file (where this statement appears) is eval'ed by perl
(whereas the list.config file is merely parsed and interpreted by
config_parse.pl), any valid Perl expression is allowed, not just literal
string expressions. Of course, some make more sense than others, but the
file globbing expression shown makes perfect sense in this case.
