Sarah and Chipp,

Please! Don't set the filetype to empty. This can cause unexpected  
results, such as files appearing at random locations in Finder  
windows or even off-screen on the desktop, particularly on older  
systems. Have mercy with the users of your software. Instead, set the  
filetype to "????????".
