(just a heads up, not sure if SF was able to send
out the notifications)

This patch suggests changing /usr/local/bin/python to
/usr/bin/env python in cgi.py and faqwiz.py.   Note
that both scripts are CGI scripts, and the FAQ has the
following to say about that:


    Note -- *don't* do this for CGI scripts. The $PATH 
    variable for CGI scripts is often very minimal, so 
    you need to use the actual absolute pathname of
    the interpreter.

-1, in other words (assuming that the FAQ is correct)
