The unix conventions were created out of necessity or out of  
convenience and most, if not all, software that uses these  
conventions is free. When the Mac became a unix machine and tetex and  
friends were ported to OS X by the unselfish work and devotion of  
people like Thomas Esser, Gerben Wierda, Richard Koch, Sebastian  
Rahtz to name only a few, these conventions were kept at least at the  
shell script's level.

Calling these people lazy because the restrictions do not suit your  
idiosyncratic naming  habits strikes me as slightly ungrateful.
