Most of the shell, perl, python scripts do depend on a hard coded location of 
bash, perl or python. Only a few use "type -p <program>" notation to 
determine where their interpreter really is, and none of them use "#! python" 
notation. I do agree that such a behavior could be considered broken, but if 
most of the programs do that I believe that the support for them should be 
provided. You can always put in some README file a note that it is not a good 
idea to rely on hard coded locations, but...
