Maybe old ProDOS (Apple II fs) users? :-) Only alphanumerics and
periods were allowed, so users tended to use periods as spacers, just
as many today use _ or - today on Unix systems. There are probably Mac
and Windows users who are amazed at the (Unix culture) people
who_love_to_name_their_files_lie_this.tar.gz :-)

Anyway, I second the notion that trying to second guess anything but
the last .extension will be fraught with difficulty.
