Hello Marco,
I would like to suggest a patch for QGit.
After this patch, QGit will open files with their original extensions in external diff.
When we're using meld or other external diff tools with syntax highlighting abilities it is important to preserve original file extentions.
I'm a SCM manager of small development company which now starting to use Git as a main Version Control tool and this requirement came from our developers (Git users)

Thanks.
Pini

    P.S: BTW in the future please post directly to git mailing list, I only seldom check sourceforge account.
