Actually, I have the best answer for this:  Per the spec, you aren't
required to support/retrieve/return/handle files with no extensions.

"Your server is only required to support directory listings and files
of types: .txt, .html, .gif, and .jpg. File types will be interpreted
from case-insensitive filename extensions."
