Don't know, hence my post. Hopefully John will sound off on this soon.

The articles indicate that Windoze executes the file no matter the extension,
so it may be that extension-based blocking won't help in this case.

I vaguely recalled something about scanning file content for the magic
executable header, and found code in the Sanitizer that checks UUE files
specifically. But .pi still looks like it might be an issue.
