I can only speak for "FileSystemDirectoryView":
The various "FS*" modules contain registrations of the form:
This specifies that files with "extension" are mapped to
instances of "FSClass".
Some FSClass'es discard the extension, others keep it.
When you have a modern CMF version (1.3.1 or above),
then you can define a "keep_extension" property with
a true value to prevent the extension to be discarded
for this file.
