      The file -> filetype mapping is done in filetype.vim (and
      scripts.vim), and isn't always that simple as `*.spec => spec'.

      And if you have working filetype detection for the filetype,
      you have the syntax file too, unless you intentionally
      didn't install it.

      So how would the silly thing find there's something to offer
      in the first place?
