Well, yes. But if '.' isn't in your $PATH, then the shell won't find it if
you just try to invoke it by typing "filename" and pressing return.
And of course if you don't use a shebang, it'll be invoked under sh rather
than under whatever shell you might have launched it from, which will be
confusing if you were trying to use shell builtins or whatever.....
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
