This option won't work for us, as the project that creates the har file, 
already creates an ejb mapped to a jar file, which creates a filename clash.

Ideally the ear plugin shouldn't try to know about every single file 
extension ever made, because invariably someone (in this case JBoss) 
invents a new one, and the ear plugin stops working.

A sane default would be to assume the suffix maps to the type for files 
that are not recognised.
