I happen to disagree, strongly.  Repositories are not homogeneous -- you
may not want executables in your module, but I want them in mine.  And
file name suffixes are not unique and reliable indicators of a file's
type.  My .doc files are plain text, thank you very much, not MS Word
documents.  There's nothing I hate more than software that thinks it
knows more than I do and refuses to let me do what I want to do.
