Well, it depends _why_ you have a python named "pypix", but two
solutions suggest themselves:
- Keep the "#!/usr/bin/env python" and then:
ln -s /usr/anim/menv/bin/pypix /usr/local/bin/python
Presumes no other python, and /usr/local/bin might become ~/bin
or something like that.
- Write a small wrapper shell script and use:
Regarding the first approach, on a personal basis I have two bin
directories: ~/bin and ~/bin-local on the machines I use. The former it
copied from my home account and is always the same - a bunch of useful
scripts. The latter is per-host customisation and is largely symlinks
to preferred versions of apps, apps installed out of the main paths,
and host-specific wrapper scripts.

Soon, Grasshopper, all will understand. And dispair. The government that
defines what is good for you, will also dictate what is bad.
