|Summary||0003563: When sorting by extension, consider files like `.gitignore` as files without extension|
|Description||I mostly use "extension" sort order in panel.|
Far considers files like `.gitignore` as files without name and with extension `gitignore`, so `.gitignore` is shown between `application.conf` and `application.xml`.
I think if a file matches a regexp /^\.[^.]*$/, the file should be considered to have no extension (so, sort order before any other extension).
P.S. Far displays files in panels with their names aligned to the left and their extensions aligned to the right. I can see `.gitignore` is fully aligned to the left, it means that for display purposes Far is already following the idea I mentioned above.
Thanks in advance :)

Wow... I've been using Far since it came out in the 90s... And I've never noticed this feature! What other cool use cases do you use it for?
P.S. The solution actually works great, so the ticket can be closed. Although I'd say this probably should be shipped as the default configuration.
