Extensionless headers

|  - Some tools such as editors and file managers which change their
|  behavior based on file extension now break (e.g., syntax coloring or
|  file-program associations).  (Vim and Emacs and Konqueror and
|  company, which all examine file contents, notwithstanding.)

That was already broken.

|  - If the user happens to be editing a copy of an extensionless header
|  in a particular build dir

Under which conditions?

If we were to reject extensionless headers based on arguments cited
Phil's postings, then we should do it right i.e. use a scheme that
does address the supposed problem.
