I believe it started with bin/geronimo -- which was based on the karaf command and that convention
was carried over. Run 'svn log framework/configs/karaf-framework/src/main/distribution/unix-shell/bin/geronimo'
for more details.

I know some people like to have <command>.bat and <command> that way invoking
a command is the same on linux/windows. Personally, I think we should have maintained our
existing conventions (e.g., etc). I'm somewhat used to typing 'geronimo', now.
So, don't have a strong opinion. Would value input from users.
