Currently, ConTeXt only recognizes the type of figure from the file extension. If a filename does not have an extension, \externalfigure fails.

For example:

    $ cp `luatools hacker.jpg` something

Then,

    \starttext
    \externalfigure[something]
    \stoptext

fails. However, if I set

    \externalfigure[something][method=jpg]

the figure loads correctly. But what is surprising is that if I set

    \externalfigure[something][method=pdf]

then also the figure loads correctly! This means that context has the code to
recognize the figure type (even without the extension), but that fails when
method is not set.

Setting a global

    \setupexternalfigures[method=pdf]

does not work because method is reset to empty by \resetfiguresettings.


Any ideas on how to load an external figure without a file extension and not
specifying the figure type by hand?
