Script suffix deletion - tales of woe

In my experience in porting many systems to many platforms, suffix
visibility is an essential aid to clarity and understanding.

I would hope that the .py suffix would be retained, as well as all other
relevant suffixes.

Do what you think is best however.

The workaround I will use if suffixes are deleted is to grep out the
first
line of the script to determine the suffix,
reinstantiate the script as suffixed and proceed. It is probably just a
Unix
hack to build a set of tools that add/del suffixes.

The trouble comes when scripts call scripts, and visibility as to the
nature
of the script is lost.

This is second-order, and probably requires human recognition, thus my
note.

Deleting suffixes may cause an increase in confusion and message traffic
by
newbies, rather than intuition-building.
