Extension alignment in the Brief mode

Hey, I may be late here with the new brief mode layout engine already rewritten, but for what it's worth, I have a suggestion.
Would be easier to read through file names, and also to identify file types, if the extension was right aligned in the column (see attached pic). I don't have a good argument for this one, but after a couple of years using NC vs TC it feels that I scan files quicker when file names and extensions are separated.

Ha! This is among the first things I've always turned off in Total Commander ;) It can be confusing, sometimes even dangerous.
One example: consider how Unity (gamedev engine) is adding an extra .meta helper for each file.

Now, if you were to delete or copy market.png file, which one would you take? ;)

Code: Select all

ancient_tower               .png
ancient_tower.png           .meta
ice_village                 .png
ice_village.png             .meta
market                      .png
market.png                  .meta
mountain_keep               .png
mountain_keep.png           .meta
ridge_of_fire               .png
ridge_of_fire.png           .meta
