Same issue for .pfb

two solutions:

1) add new permutations of extensions, .xpfb, .x001, .xreg

2) get rid of .pfb .0 .reg and use different directories/subdirectories, eg. 
maps, regions, snapshots, prefabs

3) use _reg.ext _pfb.ext _001.ext

4) retain .pfb .000 and .reg and for old .map format exports/imports... and use 
either 2 or 3 for xmap only

The first would be very bad. I prefer the second or third options.. they are 
the cleanest, but would mean changing the current system (small change, good 
change). The fourth would be a compromise, keeping the legacy system around for 
the old format - which i think is pointless.

The second option seems to be the cleanest. I think the distinction between 
regions, snapshots, prefabs, and actual maps should NOT be encoded in the file 
format description. The only real difference between the file "types" is a 
categorisation thing (why should the importer code care whether this is a 
region/snapshot/map/prefab?), so it should be done with directories.
