Hmm, I was confused, sorry. I'm trying to run the script from within
cygwin, so it *does* matter. However, I can't run the script from
cygwin as is anyways, as the very mechanism of finding the interpreter,
and passing it the file name, doesn't work because the file name would
need to be translated via 'cygpath' first anyways.

It seems I need a wrapper script in any case.
