Pull request: https://github.com/textmate/shellscript.tmbundle/pull/18

I decided not to delete the scope because there are similiar scopes like 
`meta.scope.while-loop.shell`, and though I couldn’t find any references 
to those scopes in any bundles I suspect they could be used for syntax 

(The `if-block` scope was introduced in 
https://github.com/textmate/shellscript.tmbundle/commit/3a30a60, but the 
commit message doesn’t say anything about why it was added.)
