One thing I noticed while experimenting with file-executable-p is that
it returns false for files with extensions listed in PATHEXT. For
instance, .JS is listed on one machine's PATHEXT but, after creating
foo.js, (file-executable-p "foo.js") returns nil.

As those files are directly executable from the shell, maybe Emacs
should recognize them as executables as well?
