I'm following this thread now quite a while, and I think it's not really
nessecary to change the preset fileextension. You're always free to choose
a Name and Extension for your Files, since Scribus doesn't insists in a
particular Extension.

The second reason is that it's nowadays quite difficult to find a Extension
that isn't in use. No Wonder after 20 Years of use of 3 Letter Extensions.

A quick look on http://filext.com shows that the only sensable free Extension
would be .sla (sla = Scribus Layout). I would suggest that future Versions of
Scribus should use this Extension but also show the old one in the Fileselect

Best Regards,
