I appreciate the renewed activity and development progress with Synapse, but I would highly recommend against making this behaviour the new default. I would still argue that scripts that are not located in the PATH have no place being executed by Synapse.

Quite a lot of shell scripts can be dangerous to execute without controlling their arguments and/or working directory. Take an installation script for instance. This is something you would usually only want to run once and not have quick access to via a launcher.

Seeing how easy it is to haphazardly select the wrong entry in Synapse with just one or two key strokes, I would urge you to revert this change and rework it into a contextual action and/or a toggleable option.
