in thread Actual use cases for non-filename behaviour of glob?

I'm not sure where the misunderstanding is. I often use the set (brace) notation in bash, e.g. when temporarily renaming files (mv file.name{,.old}). The question isn't about the glob syntax -- it's about being able to produce strings from a glob call that have nothing to do with files in the current directory.
