I like putting new stuff into a sandbox directory until it is ready.
Leaving it where it is means that the person applying the CVS tag must
be pretty careful. Just an observation, not a proposal.

IMO we can skip the whole thing. But checking FilenameUtils and
FileUtils I realize we don't have any methods in FileUtils that do
extension handling (getExtension, removeExtension). 

The only problem I see is people who might use methods from
FilenameUtils today. But that should motivate them to step in. :-)
