If we're talking about choosing a program to open a file, extenions

Just standardise metadata (eg, as a series of slots, some which must be
filled, others for dev or user options). Easy peasy.

Yeah, creating a new standard and getting every file to comply with it
is super simple. Why, it happens every day!

into a little knobbly bit in his spinal column where it pressed an
ancient button marked Primal Terror."
