Minor point: It would help if there's a provision for slightly
more complex interpreter arrangements, at least "interpreter
program arg1 arg2" could be "interpreter iarg1 iarg2 ... program
arg1 arg2". Maybe it's already there?
Is there a document somewhere that describes the preference for
Python? It's a new tool dependency, so the question arises "why
didn't Perl or Tcl suffice" (Perl being depended on for updating
manuals IIRC). No need to answer here; I'm sure there's a
thought or two written down to appease peasants like me. :-)
