That's too big of a change; people would need to change their extensions 
and rename lots of files just because they want to make their templates 
XHMTL and add a bit to the header? I'd prefer to reserve different 
extensions for different page template engines altogether.

Is the sniffing too magic? Do people trip up because of this in Zope?
