Indeed, and apparently I'm colorblind, since my ls highlights
executables green and I didn't notice that README is not

But as far as the principle of least surprise is concerned I kinda
expected it to work the same as /etc/rc[0-6S].d, where it is
sufficient to rename the file to not match the pattern...

So I still think it would be preferable to only process files
matching "[0-9].*".
