Follow-up Comment #1, bug #44913 (project mit-scheme):

I think the real problem is that pathname-type is not unspecific too, like
pathname-version.  Unix doesn't have either one, numerous customs
notwithstanding.  DIRECTORY-READ should really be returning pathnames with
just a name component on Unix, e.g. "my-diary.txt.gpg~".  That seems VASTLY
less troublesome than guessing.  I'll throw in a glob function as a
consolation. :-)
