on earth, extension matching would be fine.  Unless you have rogue
developers that "try" and break the system by changing file formation while
keeping extensions the same (save it as a jpg, but it is really a gif
format) you should not have a problem.  If you do have rogue developers, or
even developers that can't follow simple instructions such as "hey, if it is
not a jpeg then don't save it as a jpeg!" then you have much larger
ie. maybe the inmates of San Quinton do not make the idea
development team.
