    The previous behavior in FreeBSD allowed me to use things on
    the shebang line that weren't possible in e. g. Linux, and I enjoyed
    it, because it saved me from various hacks. Aiming for the lowest
    common denominator means losing useful features. One reason to
    prefer FreeBSD less.
