I talked to #pypy about this. Changing to:

#!/usr/bin/env python2

only works when the python2 symlink is available. Arch has the python2 symlink
to facilitate Arch's move to Python 3 as the default /usr/bin/python. Other
distros do not. Executables are often named according to their version (e.g.
/usr/bin/python2.6), but without a python2 symlink. Arch users should simply run
Python scripts using:

python2 path/to/script.py

status: chatting -> wontfix
