I agree. Anyway most of lof files are placed in */log/* and */logs/*
despite of their location. And due to my experience no other files are
rotated in any case, so .[1-9] is common to manpages and logfiles
So, */log/* and */logs/* covers almost all possible situations.
I'm looking forward for a patch correcting this problem.

I don't see a way to override this... As I've said before, viewing in
raw mode makes bzip'ed files unreadable.
