Emacs already has a function, on the C level, to look for files with
some known extensions.  This is how it finds "foo.el" when you say
"M-x load-library RET foo RET".  On DOS and Windows, the same function
is used to find .exe, .com, .bat, etc. executable in a way that mimics
Windows shells.

So this particular problem is already solved.
