        Agreed. I don't like underscores, but hyphens can be worse.
I think the best idea is to use a name that identifies the script as
being a part of PostgreSQL, and can somehow clearly define what the
script is designed to do, and then whatever you choose, _stick_with_it_!
System administrators and programmers can make symbolic links if they
need them.
