.v+ogg is just a stupid idea. It was only half seriously proposed as far 
as i can tell.

I'm in favour of any reasonable extension to differentiate video from 
audio, that doesn't include including non alpha-numeric characters into 
file extensions.

.v+ogg is not a workable solution. I'm for anything but that.
