I just talked to Brian Behlendorf (since I'm sitting next to him at the
OpenZFS Developer Summit). He doesn't have strong feelings either way,
but is concerned about breaking people who are already relying on those

My thought is we should just fix it in Debian/Ubuntu regardless of
whether it is fixed upstream.

  python utilities script suffix (.py) should be removed as per Policy

Status in zfs-linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The zfs utilities scripts shipped with debian and ubuntu such as :

      * arc_summary.py : Provides a summary of the statistics

      * arcstat.py : Print out ZFS ARC Statistics exported via kstat(1)

      * dbufstat.py : Print out statistics for all cached dmu buffers

  should be renamed according to Policy 10.4 :


  "When scripts are installed into a directory in the system PATH, the
  script name should not include an extension such as .sh or .pl that
  denotes the scripting language currently used to implement it."

  Ideally, this should be fixed and upstreamed to Debian (or to zfslinux
  upstream) as well.
