I've been using Enlightenment on my local machine for several months now. It's
pretty stable, but it still has a long way to go before it's efficient enough
to work for me. (My X keeps growing to about 150 megs of ram usage over the
course of a few weeks.) Note that Rasterman (the guy in charge of E) is on the
RHAD team. So don't forget GNOME yet...

It strikes me that we have a very powerful 'file' command, to determine what
sort of thing a given file is. Is it feasible to extend the functionality of
this command enough that we don't have to have explicit extensions?
