1) I think this is a pointless topic because how often do people have their
files wrongly extensioned?
2) as far as playback is concerned, it is at best non trivial to make it
work and would slow down buffering and increase bin/ram usage for a mostly
pointless addition.
3) I don't see why this would be needed immediately in this plugin. Sure it
would be a nice addition but there is no reason it must happen straight
away.
