At LIFLG.org we are in progress of shifting away from Loki-Setup and moving to Mojosetup. Something

The old Loki-Setup/makeself ones used *.run. We do not want to use the same suffix again, since we

My idea is, that we just do not append any suffix. Just i.e. homm.3_1.3.1a-english_x86. This works
under Gnome, is different from *.run and somehow likewise the Linux/Unix tools which also do not
have any suffix.
Any other ideas or recommendations?
