I'm trying to implement new analysis tools using Teemu's framework. For 
some reason this only supports a subset of all gromacs files, and uses 
new enumerated types to distinguish them. E.g.:

                    .description("Structure factors"));

I would like this file to have the .xml extension, however in 
options/filenameoption.cpp we only have:

     registerType(eftTopology,    efTPS);
     registerType(eftTrajectory,  efTRX);
     registerType(eftPDB,         efPDB);
     registerType(eftIndex,       efNDX);
     registerType(eftPlot,        efXVG);
     registerType(eftGenericData, efDAT);

note that the eftXXX are different from efXXX in fileio/filenm.h.

Main question therefore is:
Why would we not allow all the old field types?
