Probably the right thing to do; but: Once I had some vague hope to make
"fortran-mode" a smart thing that chose the correct mode, f77 or f90 (or
f95 or f2000 or ...), based on the filename/contents, but it never
happened and shows no sign of doing so. Without a realistic expectation
of that second step, the first step of renaming things will just annoy
people for no reason, so I can't see much point.
