Disable the ‘Really continue’ obstruction dialogue #333
When renaming a file to a different extension, geeqie displays a dialogue
that one has to click through every time and there does not seem to be any way to disable it.
First, the obsession with extensions is unhealthy in particular in Unix, as noted in https://sourceforge.net/p/geeqie/feature-requests/79/
But more importantly, the obstructing dialogue shows up even when renaming for instance .JPG from a camera to .jpeg, which in Preferences -> Files -> File types are listed as the same file type. So even from the extension-based standpoint there is no reason to warn about anything.
a) remove the thing altogether
b) provide means to disable it
c) make it smarter so that it warns only about potentially confusing extension changes, which essentially means known image type -> different known image type (letting unknown extensions be)
