Just to add a potential comment from the Windows crowd; not preserving
extensions breaks the windows auto-launching behaviour for documents. In my
situation, locked files are liable to be MS Excel files, for example; if a
non-techie attempts a check-in, and it fails, and none of the remaining
files has a ".xls" extension, then they will all disappear from the default
Excel "open file" dialogue box. Also, the nice file icon will go. This is
liable to result in at least some confusion! If changing the filename is
necessary, it would be nice to have an option to put the change at the start
or before "\.[^\.]*$"
