But don't forget that Microsoft appears to prefer that users don't see those pesky
little extensions. Default settings in most Windows flavors will not display the ".exe"
at all. Since (here at least) the engineers typically insist on including more than one
file with the same root name (boffo.exe, boffo.pdf, boffo.hlp) we have been forced to
resort to pictures of the icons to distinguish in these cases.
