Package: node-stylus
Version: 0.48.1+dfsg-1
Severity: normal
File: /usr/lib/nodejs/stylus/bin/stylus

Dear Maintainer,

If you use the ``.styl`` file extension, stylus compiles to a new
file with the ``.css`` extension (seems reasonable enough)

        $ echo -e "body\n\tfont sans-serif" > test.styl  
        $ stylus test.styl
          compiled test.css
        $ cat test.styl
                font sans-serif

But if you use a different file extension, it overwrites your file:

        $ echo -e "body\n\tfont sans-serif" > test.stylus
        $ stylus test.stylus 
          compiled test.stylus
        $ cat test.stylus
        body {
          font: sans-serif;

I think this is very bad. Stylus should not overwrite the source
file unless explicitly told to do so. It should create test.css or

Thank you :)
