As long as we're discussing bikeshed colors, I'd like to
counterpropose .pya and .pwa, to be registered in the Windows class
registry as Python Console Application and Python Windowed
Application, respectively.

Since the *only* reason we need these extensions is for Windows (other
OSes do fine at making things executable without an extension), and
Windows calls things like these "Applications" or "Apps" in Explorer
normally, I think it's better to call them what Windows calls them.
