"usability enhancement". I have already ran into the situation where I added
a known extension onto an file with an unknown extension and, now that is
has been automagically hidden, I can't change it back (e.g  changed
movie.mp4 to movie.mp4.avi hoping that it would show up in the video player
selection and that I could try playing it). I could install the terminal and
rename it there but I would rather just see the complete filename.
Extensions don't scare me and don't need to be hidden.

As a side question, is there a way to have the various application *not*
filter the filenames to only the ones that they think they can deal with?
