Thanks, Francesco and Eli, for your thoughts on etags *.el.

I wouldn't want you to spend too much time thinking about this, though!
Mainly, it was a surprise to me.  I had transferred some files a long time
ago, and they happened to have been upcased somewhere, and I never noticed
that they weren't being indexed by etags.

One of the confusing things in all this is that the wildcard "*.el" in
Windows matches "xxx.EL", too.  Not much we can do about that.

One simple solution might be to give a warning message in etags for
unrecognized extensions, and perhaps files with zero tag entries.  If etags
had told me that .EL was unrecognized, I would have just renamed the files.

By the way, what's the purpose of generating a tag entry for every line of
an unrecognized file type?
