We're starting a discussion in Fedora about setting the default shbang for
system python executables and/or daemons to python -s or python -Es (or ?).

Basically we're wanting to avoid locally installed items causing security
issues or other bad behavior, without too adversely affecting users'
abilities to work around issues or intentionally alter behavior.

It would be good to get some feedback from the broader python community
before implementing anything, so I'm asking for feedback here.

Thank you,
