The .gpg suffix (or .sig/.asc) makes gpg not complain about an unknown

Naming them for the arch I can see as being valid. As Bill stated
though, .sig or .gpg or .asc makes it sound like something it is not, but if
there is overwhelming desire...
Having the sums in the same name file does make it easy to find/verify, so
there is THAT usability you're risking. Is it worth it? I don't know.
