Furthermore, it says:

"The value for the literal is composed of wildcards separated by segments of
text. Wildcards may begin or end the literal. Wildcards may not be
adjacent."

I don't understand this -- it seems to imply that "__" (to match any
two-character sequence) is not allowed. Does anybody remember what one would
want that?
