 Actually it was.  Commas were not meant to denote separate files until we
 decided to add brace expansion in March.  If those globs ever matched
 something without a ".json," in the middle of the filename and a ".yml" at
 the end, it was a bug in the parser being used.  I'm fairly sure none of
 the parsers in February 2013 used commas to denote separate file globs.

 This is specific to each editor plugin.  I believe all of the plugins I
 know have been updated to 0.11 for some time (almost all since March
