I would like to add my +1 to Eric's msg120485 above.  What I really find puzzling is why some scripts in Tools/ have hashbangs, but don't have execute permission.

Tools/scripts/cleanfuture.py
Tools/scripts/combinerefs.py
Tools/scripts/db2pickle.py
Tools/scripts/find_recursionlimit.py
Tools/scripts/md5sum.py
Tools/scripts/pickle2db.py
Tools/scripts/pysource.py
Tools/scripts/svneol.py

I suggest a simple rule: no execute bit set in permissions - no hashbang line.

And I don't think stdlib modules should have execute bit:

-rwxr-xr-x Lib/base64.py
-rwxr-xr-x Lib/cProfile.py
-rwxr-xr-x Lib/cgi.py
-rwxr-xr-x Lib/keyword.py
-rwxr-xr-x Lib/pdb.py
-rwxr-xr-x Lib/platform.py
-rwxr-xr-x Lib/profile.py
-rwxr-xr-x Lib/pydoc.py
-rwxr-xr-x Lib/quopri.py
-rwxr-xr-x Lib/smtpd.py
-rwxr-xr-x Lib/smtplib.py
-rwxr-xr-x Lib/symbol.py
-rwxr-xr-x Lib/tabnanny.py
-rwxr-xr-x Lib/token.py
-rwxr-xr-x Lib/uu.py

-rwxr-xr-x Lib/test/pystone.py
-rwxr-xr-x Lib/test/re_tests.py
-rwxr-xr-x Lib/test/regrtest.py
-rwxr-xr-x Lib/test/test_array.py
-rwxr-xr-x Lib/test/test_binhex.py
-rwxr-xr-x Lib/test/test_dbm_gnu.py
-rwxr-xr-x Lib/test/test_dbm_ndbm.py
-rwxr-xr-x Lib/test/test_errno.py
-rwxr-xr-x Lib/test/test_userstring.py
