To reiterate:
Surely the point of a +1 is that you approve of (or at least don't mind) the
effect it has on your system. If everyone goes for 0 when they don't have an
OS, then no OS used by < 3 people on this list can _ever_ be supported.

Actually, it takes a pattern, not an extension. It prepends * if the
pattern is not a pattern (if my reading of the code is right). This could
be considered to be a bug (I can't describe a file called x if there is also
a file called abc.x, or even abcx). In fact, mod_dir does this to _any_
filename argument.

Same point as above.
