Summary0000640: Add legacy Amiga filename detection

On some versions of the Amiga, file extensions are put before the filename instead of after it, much unlike modern operating systems. This makes it a tedious process trying to open modules that were made on older Amiga systems, since you need to enable all files to find them. Also, you can't do a regular file association thing with Windows, since it would detect the filename itself as the file extension due to the differences in syntax.

However, if somebody on the team could implement a quick workaround so that OpenMPT can natively detect Amiga-style extensions, then it might make things just slightly less tedious.

Where exactly are you missing this functionality? The file browser already shows MOD.* files, but for e.g. non-native Amiga file types this doesn't make any sense of course.

r8673 shows Amiga-style extensions in the tree view for modules. The other "open file" dialogs already did this for MOD files, as mentioned before.
