It's just an alternative configuration file name, such as
/etc/ipfw.conf. You typically use it like this in /etc/rc.conf:


This script is actually a valid shell script which will be
executed, as _commands_. If you use


instead, you need to supply _options_ that can follow a call
of the ipfw program.

The real difference is _script and _type, not the file name per se. :-)
