I wore those for years and years... WITH finger holes, just like 2 or 3 rows. That makes them sit better in my opinion. When thinking of making some for myself, I thought of making them with WITH the little stubs.
and, yes, the tumb stays a regual "glove thumb", but you can steal the idea off the hunting gloves and make a slit on one side near the base, then you can "dive out" with your tumb and use the "bare finger" if needed.
