What does it mean to say that PmWiki is going to ignore the 
extension? Isn't it the web server that interprets the extension to 
decide how to dispatch the request? In other words, won't the web 
server have to ignore the extension too? Or am I just displaying my 
colossal ignorance of such matters?

As for being useful for static copies of the pages, if you use 
HTTrack to capture a static representation, it rewrites the URLs so 
that they work. No need for this "ignoring" scheme.
