Comment (by MikeSchinkel):

 In preparing for my WordCamp Atlanta talk about URL routing I've run into
 this function causing all kind of headache for customized URLs.

 There's a reason for the HTTP 404 status code, incorrect URLs are
 incorrect and the client searching for them should be told so! :)

 The problem with this is it can return one resource today and another
 resource in the future after the user added a higher priority "guess."

 My vote is ''(for my own sites at least)'' to fully disable this
 functionality Please address this so we can use plugins to fully control
 our URLs.
