Yes.  Scripts will normally include "script" and "text" as well.  ISTR
something breaking in FreeBSD when the word "text" was removed in the
output from file, so presumably they at least depend on this
behaviour.  It might be a bit fragile, I suppose.

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
