I too thought we had an issue for this, but I can't find any. Yes,
please file an enhancement-request issue (pointing to this thread).
Frankly, I don't think we even need a config control for this -- it
ought to be the default behavior.

Although of course, any examples in the book(s) and FAQ will need to
be updated if we change this behavior. Mmm, and worse, some programs
might be depending on it. In other words, the current practice of
putting the Subversion-specific extension on the end might be
considered an API of sorts.

I've CC'd dev@ to see what people there think.
