Sounds like a good idea. The attached patch does this for both  
GlobalVariables and GlobalFunctions, it supports Regex, "Normal", and  
StartsWith (all use regex in the end to resolve the variable), I had to  
add a method in ModuleList as there's nothing ModuleList that does regex,  
but the underlying per-module apis do support it.
