File extension for uncompressed scores

David Bolton-2
I have noticed issues with .MSC files on Windows and email still come up
on the forums. And I think it is worth revisiting this issue for the
next release of MuseScore.

Version 0.9.3 made .MSCZ the default file extension which took care of
most of these issues. However the need (or desire) for uncompressed
MuseScore files still exists and the demo and template files shipped
with MuseScore come as .MSC files. As I point out on the forum there are
some advantages to keeping the demo and template files as uncompressed text:
http://musescore.org/en/node/929#comment-1457

Should we replace the .MSC file extension with an alternative file
extension in the next version of MuseScore? Some options alternatives
that come to mind are .MSCU ("MuseScore Uncompressed"), .MSCX
("MuseScore XML"), or .MSCORE.

The uncompressed files are handy for testing and development and i would like
to keep them. The .msc extension was a bad choice and we should change it to
avoid problems on windows. I vote for .mscx. Maybe MuseScore can still read
*.msc files for backward compatibility and there should be no problem until
someone binds this extension to mscore on windows.

It has my vote as well.
I tested the extension with gmail (you never know) and it arrived at its destination.
Also http://filext.com/ nor http://www.file-extensions.org/ returned that mscx is not being used yet.
