This looks correct to me, but the only way to ensure it will
remain so is to add a test case.  Could you write one?  See
tests/README for guidance.

Also we can't install such a new feature without a proper update
of the manual.  Finally, you should also submit a ChangeLog entry
along with your patch.  I think that's all :)

I'm not a fortran user, but I've always wondered why .f90 was
listed as an extension for F77.  Moving it away sounds sensible
to me.
