Couldn't check but this obviously won't break anything for sure! +1

Well ".phpsh" is a pretty bad extension for a shell script, but ".php" isn't
better either. In any case, this will lead to a break if someone has
already set up cron jobs using the dispatcher. So -1.

Don't rename, but use "env" for that!
