This appears to return true for the running phar file regardless of the file extension. This is undocumented (as is the fact that PHP will run phar files perfectly fine with a php extension). This allows, for instance, reading the metadata for the running phar.

Note, that this method accepts _everything_ (=> returns 'true'), when $executable is 'false' as long as the filename contains at least a dot

var_dump(\PharData::isValidPharFilename('randomstring.y', false));

This is not wrong at all, because I can name an archive like I want, but it makes the method completely useless (when $executable == false).
