Default Filing a brake caliper that's just too short?

Hey everyone,

I just bought a front brake caliper that's *just* too short for the
Peugeot frame that it'll be one. Seriously, I only need another 1 mm of
reach...maybe 2 mm tops.

Does anyone see an danger to me filing a flat spot in the bolt like this: ???
only it'd be on the brake pad's bolt...not my get the picture.

I have a better solution. File a thick-ish washer so that it is a wedge,
then put it between brake and frame. It'll push the brake arms down just
enough to fit.
