Before noticing your email, I already changed it to require only that
a first line starting with #!<space> or #!/ be ignored, and provided
a rationale in the commit comment.  Basically, a reasonable local
customization of the script on a Windows platform might be to eliminate
the first line altogether, and a following line of #!r6rs or some
other #!symbol would then be incorrectly ignored.
