In early versions of the upload.php script the ".exe" extension was
disallowed, but something caused me to change my mind and go ahead and
allow ".exe" as an available upload type.  It might pose a danger to IIS
servers, but I dunno.  I can always remove the .exe default and leave
it as a local customization if we want to do that.
