Thanks for the link. I was unaware of the /usr/bin/env technique and
the controversy surrounding it.
Thanks, too, for trying *PythonTidy*.
As you have no doubt perceived, *PythonTidy* is *not* "table driven."
It is a script after all. I decided before writing it that I didn't
really need to externalize all the options; nevertheless, most are
declared near the beginning where they sit just begging for end-user
involvement. See: CODING_SPEC and SHEBANG. *PythonTidy* is all about
consistency, consistency, and consistency. You can use it to
standardize shebangs and coding across a whole library of Python
