Aren't the pex* functions designed to provide a uniform interface where

I guess I'm not the right person to answer that...
I think they are designed to provide a uniform interface to process
creation, etc. that is a lowest-common-denominator across systems.
Running scripts seems to me outside of scope. I certainly think that
this is a topic on which people could reasonably disagree.
Part of my concern is that we seem to be adding to the complexity of our
already baroque build process, in lieu of just attacking the problem
head-on. Even a new driver option for additional directories to search
seems better to me.
However, by the time I write this, I see that DJ -- who is a right
person to answer to talk about the purpose of libiberty -- thinks #! is
a good idea. So, consider me the loyal opposition; let's get on with
the fix you and DJ like. :-)
