I am not familiar with the warning system, but it seems plausible that one
could add to the end of .splitext (before it returns) an optional warning
if not ext and base == '.':
warn("Before 2.6, this would have returned (%s,%s) instead of (%s,%s)"
% (ext, base, base, ext))
where base and ext have the obvious contents. Is this what you want?
