Currently Mocha's executable bin/mocha has no extension. When using Node's --loader (alias: --experimental-loader) option, the process will crash since Node isn't able/willing to handle extensionless entry points:

NODE_OPTIONS="--loader=./lib/loader.mjs" npx mocha

TypeError [ERR_UNKNOWN_FILE_EXTENSION]: Unknown file extension "" for .../mocha/bin/mocha

See also extensive discussion in nodejs/node#41711.

Description of the Change

Rename bin/mocha to bin/mocha.js.
