I agree, it is unsafe and shouldn't be done anywhere. Instead of doing
that, you can abstract it into a function that will do all kinds of
safety checks before returning one file name, or a list of file names.
This function then should be safe to use everywhere.

As I said earlier: If we do this right once, right now, we never have to
care about it again and always just upload and submit whatever
compression format we want in the future.
