As Glynn mentioned yesterday, no more support in GRASS 7
for shell script installation:

file *
r.convert:     POSIX shell script text executable
r.convert.all: POSIX shell script text executable

(also the extension is lacking a Makefile).

I think that the g.extension version in GRASS 7 should trap this
somehow (not sure how, perhaps simply via mime type test of
the file(s) to install?).
