error semantics of faulty dependencies

We just had a case on nmap-dev where a programmer accidentally stated
dependencies = {"script-name.nse"}
which is wrong. The correct way is to leave out the file extension. So
dependencies = {"script-name"}
would have been correct.

I have done the same error myself, and I can tell you it is really
hard to debug. Could nmap be modified to include some sort of check
that would catch these errors and give a clear error message when run
with debugging flags?
