So you suggest adding a check in the infrastructure that finds shell
scripts, and replaces the interpreter automatically if needed?

There already is something like that in place that checks for
non-existant interpreters, and I have a patch that extends this to check
for /bin/sh on Solaris. I could probably extend it further to
automatically replace it with or something like that.

Would that be better?
