Not with John's recommended globs as in:
This means:
0 or many | dot | alpha | alpha | alphanumeric | dot | alphanumeric | alphanumeric | alphanumeric

Each [a-z] represents/matches a single alpha character, so  .[a-z][a-z][a-z].  mathes any 3 
alpha chars sandwiched between two dots.

would be trapped of course.
