I think the click concept of "Pages" should remain as it is, and should 
apply only the *.htm
and *.jsp pages (Velocity or JSP).
Other extensions should be handled differently, not as a page, since 
they are not "pages" in the real sense of the word.

Handling *other file types* is however important, but I think specific
controls should handle this, controls that can be linked from pages.

I think they should be threated separately (and should be controls - 
e.g. link controls).

(Also the sitemap that can be submitted to google would be good for 
public click applications: )

Please vote for it, or submit a patch if you already have a good one 
that would fit with the Click concept.

I would add:
- PDF:
- FileDownload support, "controlled download" to be more precise:

> Example sitemap index
I'm getting only:
-------------------  2009-04-17T18:52:58+01:00  2009-04-17T18:52:58+01:00
So no nice sitemap example :(.

> Example rss
Nice. I'll make a JIRA issue for this too.
