As vapier has pointed out, this option doesn't exist in bash-3.2.
I think that it's clear that we have to stick with this bash version
for EAPI 5 at least.

Besides, I remember that in previous discussions (about extglob and
noglob IIRC) it was argued that they should stay at their default, and
that the ebuild should handle them via eshopts_{push,pop} if needed.
This is following the principle of least surprise.

What would be the usage case for these? It would imply that an ebuild
could behave differently when it's moved from an overlay to the main
tree. Do we really want this?
