If so, should NSUserDefaults strip the .exe?  I don't know.

I think it should. Two reasons :

- compatibility :
  - a script (installation ?) that use defaults is not portable.
  - a UserDefaults file is system dependent and can not be
    shared between Windows and linux
- it's annoying ;-)
i always forget the '.exe' and dont understand why it doesnt work ;-)

Just another data point, interpret as you wish... but OPENSTEP on NT and
WO did strip the extensions to identify the domain name

C:\Apple\Local\Projects>defaults domains
Calculator ChangesTest EOFTestApp EOITest EOModeler EOTool FileMerge
GSMarkupBrowser ....

That's good enough for me.  I'll change it.

Did they string the .exe from [NSProcessinfo-processName] as well?
