Bug#488969: please warn if a non-executable file in scripts/*/* is found

Package: initramfs-tools
Version: 0.92b
Severity: wishlist

initramfs runs executable scripts in scripts/*/* at various stages.
Albeit an error by the user or the package, scripts without
executable permissions get copied to the initrd by the hooks, but
then they don't get executed.

Maybe initramfs could warn about files in scripts/*/* it would
install, which aren't executable?
