On Windows, the presence or absence of a space will make no difference,
because it's just a comment.

As far as I know, on any Unix, Linux or other POSIX system, the presence or
absence of a space between the #! and the path is irrelevant. I suppose it is
possible that ancient Unixes from 1970 or something might not like the space,
but that would surprise me.
