[PATCH] Don't require ".nse" be passed to --script
From: Kris Katterjohn <katterjohn () gmail com>

Hey everyone!

I've attached a patch to allow passing only the script name, the filename without the ".nse" extension, to --script.

I've been running multiple scripts, in different categories, and I've had to keep repetitively typing ".nse" on every filename... which I didn't like :)

An example:

--script bruteTelnet.nse,HTTPpasswd.nse,SQLInject.nse,robots.nse

turns into

--script bruteTelnet,HTTPpasswd,SQLInject,robots

Not an *incredibly* dramatic difference, but I much prefer it :)

And sometimes it seems a whole lot better when it's only 1 or 2 scripts.

All it does is try the passed argument (like "bruteTelnet"), and if it doesn't find that file it tries it with ".nse" appended to it, which it will find here.

Please let me know what you think!
