I think Peter's argument is that what kind of file it is really doesn't help a
regular user. Nonetheless I agree strongly. Even if it doesn't actually make
any practical difference it's one less thing to wonder about and one more
anchor for a user to hold onto when trying to understand what's going on.
I know I feel better knowing what part is actually broken on my car than just
having a dummy light come on even if I'm going to go to the same garage either
