tough question to answer - it means weighing thre balance between how
likely people are to having files with no extension, the time it adds
to do scanning, whether people could figure out what i figured out,
and how likely people would be to change the filenames.

i found the same thing happened with amarok - it expects an extension as well

on the other hand, you could just let people add *anything* to the
library, regardless of whether it's music, image, executable, or
whatever else they're likely to do, and then let mplayer sort out what
happens when you try to play a non-audio track - i'm guessing mplayer
can work out without being told, what type of file it is?
