Détails

We now support expansion like this:

$ set -o braceexpand
$ d=. o=1
$ echo {1${d}${d}3} {${o}..3}
1 2 3 1 2 3

This may possibly be a cause of unexpected expansion, for example, like echo {${var}} where var='1..3'.

On the other hand, it would still be useful if the range of numeric brace expansion could be specified by parameters: echo {${from}..${to}}

So my current opinion is that the braces and dots must be literal (not from parameter expansion) but the numbers can be a parameter.

(This behavior is different from that of other shells, though...)
