When I make a command-line utility I tend to leave the extension off of the filename: “copy_xattrs” instead of “copy_xattrs.zsh”, for example. That gives me the option later to swap a shell script for a Python script (or a Python script for an executable, or whatever) without renaming the file. Ideally, this also means that I wouldn’t need to change any of the programs that call the utility.
