This is why I think Galaxy unit tests really need to be up to date and
working thoroughly. Something like this could have been easily caught.

Having wasted multiple hours it would be helpful to see in the
documentation that only LOWERCASE is allowed for defining unique file
extensions to link specific files output by one tool as a particular input
to another tool.
<datatype extension="LOWER CASE ONLY-prog1_output"
type="galaxy.datatypes.data:Text" sub display_in_upload="True"/>
outgoing tool's xml
<datatype format="LOWER CASE ONLY-prog1_output" name="output1"
Accepting tool's xml
<datatype format="LOWER CASE ONLY-prog1_output" type="data"
It would be great to know up-front the format can only be LOWER CASE -- no
error message, no ignoring upper or lower and treating the same. Just
failure when trying to run it.
