A question about gerber file names


I just accidentally done a plot with the 'proper gerber extension'
option turned on and noticed a strange thing (well the 'proper
extension' is a strange thing in itself since everyone does it in
a different way...)

Usually I get files named pcb-Front.pho, pcb-Back.pho and so on.

Proper extensions instead give pcb-Front.gtl, pcb-Bac.gbl and so on.

Should it use pcb.gtl, pcb.gbl ??? I tought it was to simplify import in
programs like CAM350 which uses a template on the basename (or some fabs
which want all the same basename in a zip -- our wants differents
extensions anyway:P)
