Similar here with first period omitted.  jr.Kernel.Mod rather than
jrKernel.Mod facilitates automated processing of file names?  Another

In absence of potential ambiguity I omit the prefix.
Some files have multiple levels of suffix.  Eg.

Prohibition of multiple periods suggested by HyperGaruda seems
unnecessary. (?)
