However, webservers tend to insist on extensions.

That's just a matter of configuration.

    How would you configure Apache to be extension-less given that you need things like:

    AddType application/x-httpd-php3 .php3 # For PHP AddType application/x-tar .tgz # For 'shorthand' tar.gz AddType text/html .shtml # For server-parsed
    to have it send the proper 'content-type' to the broswer?

    As an aside, I completely agree that end user apps should be extensionless. I don't think extensions are a bad thing for webservers. How often do you enter in the location bar of your browser? Odds are you type and click 'Newest Nodes' or just have a bookmark...

    OmG! They killed tilly! You *bleep*!!
      I find it much quicker typing
