I just tried the following:

mpg at siegel:~% echo '\\bye' > foobar
mpg at siegel:~% pdftex foobar
This is pdfTeXk, Version 3.1415926-1.40.9 (Web2C 7.5.7)
 %&-line parsing enabled.
entering extended mode
(./foobar )
No pages of output.
Transcript written on foobar.log.
mpg at siegel:~% luatex foobar
This is LuaTeX, Version snapshot-0.25.4-2008071722 (Web2C 7.5.7)
! I can't find file `foobar.tex'.
<*> foobar

Please type another input file name:

Looks like luatex doesn't want to eat files without extensions, while pdftex
accepts them.  Is it a feature?
