Note that so long as the .extension of the file is one not associated with an application/program on the user's computer, the Open here, download, ... pop-up box query should present itself when the link/URL is clicked.
I'd imagine there is some sort of code that would force that query box to display regardless of the .extension, and I may have seen it but the hades if I can remember it or find it on my computer.

If you can modify how mime-types are handled on the server, you can force a download for a given file extension, I believe.
