That wasn't the _point_. The point is, naming things as being "scripts" is useful. Grep is just an example. Naming things as being ".pl" or ".sh" is _not_ useful. So with grep you can use -I, but what about doing things like "em *" when doing global renames (I use micro-emacs - em - as my editor). Again, "em *-script" actually works. The point being that if we have naming rules, make them USEFUL. *-script is useful - it works wonderfully well for "git xxx" (which knows to add "-script"), and it works wonderfully well for developers.
