I'm not sure if this is a bug (hence the question mark in the subject),
but the two python scripts in /usr/bin ("idle" and "pydoc") refer to
/usr/bin/python.exe in their #! line. Is there a particular reason why
they don't just use /usr/bin/python? I know it makes no difference in
Cygwin, but it might be confusing. Also, I looked at the Python sources,
and the sample scripts there contain '#! /usr/bin/env python' (not
/usr/bin/python.exe). I'm guessing that this somehow gets changed in
setup.py, but don't know enough Python to find exactly where this happens.
This "problem" has been present since at least python-2.3-2 (maybe
