There is still one thing to do for age-compatibility I believe.

The emacs extension doesn't take into account the possibility that files
might end in .age instead of .gpg.

I have made a patch to introduce an option to change that, which doesn't
have answers nor reviews to this day.

Thanks if you can review this quickly.
