For those of you who are interested, I have followed Edd's indications
off line and came up with a couple of rewrite rules for Apache that does
the trick quite safely (not rewriting anything if there is already an
extension and checking if the ".xml" file exists before adding the

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule	\. - [L]
RewriteRule	^(.*) $1.xml [L]

Hope this helps.
