Yup, of course.

The problem turned out to be two things:  the "h2n" command had not
after all been changed to unix line endings, which made it not work
unless the interpreter was explicitly invoked on it; and forgetting to
/test.py instead of test.py.  Even though I had *just* ./test.sh 5
seconds before, I forgot on test.py.  Bleaugh.

Sorry to waste bandwidth.

<craft>ly y'rs,
