Banshee does not import songs without extension

Bug Description

Binary package hint: banshee

In Natty we moved to Banshee from rhythmbox. Rhythmbox syncs songs from portable devices without any extension (atleast for ipod shuffle) when you import those songs in Banshee they are not added. I opened a bug upstream which turned out be a duplicate of an already 'wontfix' bug. I believe we need to fix this issue since many of our users would have imported songs from rhythmbox to their systems and when they wont be able to play those songs with the new default Music player that wont be good.

Does not seem like many people are affected as I had expected maybe we'll see something after release.
