Here are those rules in the active filename.rules.conf:

# Allow days of the week and months in doc names, e.g. blah.wed.doc
allow   \.(mon|tue|wed|thu|fri|sat|sun)\.[a-z0-9]{3}$   -       -allow
       -       -

# Deny all other double file extensions. This catches any hidden
filenames.deny    \.[a-z][a-z0-9]{2,3}\s*\.[a-z0-9]{3}$   Found possible
filename hiding                          Attempt to hide real filename

The only changes to that file that have been made are to remove the OE
length checking (the site is Mac-only and that rule interferes with
legitimate mail) and to add an allow for .svn files.
