Goal

The FTP delivery section of the bursting control file contains
'remote-file="${FILENAME}" (where FILENAME is typically 'NEWP0911' in the XML
output from the concurrent request), but the file created on the remote
server has the name 'NEWP0911.text'.

Example:
The bursting control file contains the FTP delivery entry for an eText formatted file like:

<xapi:ftp id="ftp" server="servername" user="username"
password="password" remote-directory="/cpx/live/transfer"
remote-file="FILENAME1">
</xapi:ftp>


The file on the remotes server is created as 'FILENAME1.text'.
Need to remove the file name extension (.text)
