ipp is normally used for header includes, which these are not. Note that we
also have *.inc in use in other libraries (personally I'm less keen on this
because my IDE doesn't recognise the extension). BTW, the code has been
this way since the config system review, and is documented as using this
convention. It would have been helpful for issues like this to be raised at
review time, otherwise we loose the cvs history for very little benefit.
