Suffixes are a convenient way to represent types on a windows 
machine, but the fact still is that opening a file (standard C, C++, 
or other languages) doesn't present you with a content type.  Similar 
with FTP, in FTP transfer why should you assume your local extension 
mapping is what the person who uploaded it to the FTP site had 
intended.
