This approach of a separate available/enabled modules dir is the default
approach in the MASTER branch (to be 3.x):
I don't think blacklisting specific extensions in the conffile.c source
is helpful, personally. It's "magic" and hardcoded lists are a pain -
what seems reasonable to one person can be annoying to another.
You could possibly extend the syntax to be a glob e.g.
...but the default would need to stay as-is in the 2.x branch for
backwards compatibility. Possibly you could persuade people to change
all the $INCLUDE'ed files to have relevant extensions e.g.
...but they seem like "noise" to me. I like the separate dir / symlink
