Well, I was.  Here is what I had in mind.

1. Introduce SCRIPT_SH and SCRIPT_PERL, and make
   "SCRIPTS = $(SCRIPT_SH) $(SCRIPT_PERL)" in the Makefile.
2. Install git-foo.sh as $(DEST)$(bin)/git-foo
3. Documentation to describe git-foo command is Documentation/git-foo.txt

I was planning to leave gitk source as gitk, not gitk.tcl nor
gitk.wish nor gitk.sh for now, if only to help me merging from

Depending on how people would react to the "why would people
care what scripting language is the thing written in" comment by
Linus, I may be persuaded otherwise though, in which case 1. is
not needed, and 2. would lose '.sh', but 3. would not change.
