New submission from Aaron DeVore <aaron.devore at gmail.com>:

The shebangs on scripts use the generic python executable instead of explicitly
asking for Python 2 via the python2 executable. This is currently an issue on
Arch Linux, which has switched /usr/bin/python to Python 3. I usually attach a
patch, but my find-and-replace tool isn't handling some non-English characters
very well. Basically just replace

#!/usr/bin/env python


#!/usr/bin/env python2
