Well, .sty files _are_ special (normal files do not contain "self
references").  And if you think about rule:

notangle file.ext.pamphlet > file.ext

this _is_ alredy broken by many files (in 'src/hyper') when we

file.pamphlet -> file.c


               /-> file.h
file.pamphlet -|
               \-> file.c

I agree that you proposal is logical, but it is also clumsy: .pamphlet
extension is already pretty long and sticking on it another extension
will give very long files names.
