I think the use of the .inc.am extension is intended to make it
obvious that it's a snippet that will be included rather than a
standalone file: as a test, I tried renaming one of the snippets
from .inc.am to .am and I was still able to distcheck.

CC'ing Dan for context, since he's the one who introduced
snippets in the first place.
