However, webservers tend to insist on extensions.

That's just a matter of configuration.

    <topic offness="slight">

    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?
    </topic>

    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 http://www.perlmonks.org/index.pl?node_id=3628 in the location bar of your browser? Odds are you type http://www.perlmonks.org and click 'Newest Nodes' or just have a bookmark...

    OmG! They killed tilly! You *bleep*!!

      http://www.perlmonks.org/index.pl?node_id=3628
      ?
      I find it much quicker typing
      perlmonks.org/?node_id=3628
      ;-)
