Completely off-topic: the "/usr/bin/env" hack doesn't work with
command-line arguments under Linux:

$ cat t.py 
#!/usr/bin/env python -i

print "hello"

$ ./t.py  
/usr/bin/env: python -i: No such file or directory

Grumble.  Andrew and I tried to track this down once, and found
suspicious-looking code in the kernel (ie., I don't think it's the fault
of GNU env).
