New submission from Zooko O'Whielacronx <zooko at zooko.com>:

On my Mac:

$ ./ez_setup.py
bash: ./ez_setup.py: python: bad interpreter: No such file or directory

On Cygwin I get the same sort of error.  Replacing the shebang line "#!python"
with "#!/usr/bin/env python" fixes this problem.  I've tested this fix on Mac,
Linux, Solaris, Cygwin, and Windows.
