The $PATH variable for CGI scripts may be minimal, but minimal
as it is, Python should still be on it. Using /usr/bin/python
works for half the people and /usr/local/bin/python works for
the other half... /usr/bin/env is supposed to work for everyone.
If this has already been argued soundly to death, i'm happy to
back out the change and add a comment. It was a meaningless
change for me anyway.
Oh well. Anyway, i'm glad CVS commit *finally* works for me.
Sorry for the extra hassle.
