Requiring typing extension in wad console command is annoying. Odamex should try adding the extension if file isn't found. At least ".wad", same as with "-file" cmdline argument.

Pipe dreams: filename tab completion.

I think the reason this was intentional is so that there can be differentiation between files that are named the same but end with different extensions. Exmaple: av.wad and av.deh.

Old bug, probably won't fix. Cleaning up the tracker, so closing.
