The only problem I see is when the file extension itself contains a
preiod, but I think the major issue, namely keeping the file extensions in
most cases, is more important than the minor problem of splitting e.g.
"tar.gz" into "tar.mine.gz".

We never guarantee that foo will have a conflict name of foo.mine, since
we might add a number in between to make the name unique. That's another
way to say what CMike already pointed out, I guess:-)

I think this is a good idea.
