Hi Walter,

Thanks for your review.

I don't think anybody implied or said that this is a *needed* change,
so I wouldn't want to defend a position that was never taken nor
implied. Instead of started a potentially long, meandering thread
about whether or not a rename would be nice, I started instead with
the patch, but I never meant to imply I thought this was something
that was needed.

- "build.sh" is rather generic
- most people are dropping (or never liked) the ".sh" at the end of scripts
- most executables from this project start with either "x" or "xorg"

This project appears to be in a bit of a "cleanup" mode (e.g. let's
consider and apply a coding style) so I thought it would be a good
time to consider a rename of this script.

If you're not in favour of this change would it be because of the
timing, or would you never be in favour of this change?

Best regards,
