Without suffixes in the URL, there's a name clash if you have a
subdirectory "A" as well as "A.git". Take for example a repository
"exim.git" and "exim/exim-helpers.git", "exim/config.git".

What should http://cgit-server/exim display? -> Don't display
suffixes, but use them in the URL do avoid ambiguity in a case like
the one mentioned.
