Yeah, having the ability to specify an optional wrapper script, that
receives the name of the normal interpreter and all the arguments the
normal interpreter would have been given, sounds like the ultimate in
flexibility at a minimum of xml.  It comes at the expense of pushing the
burden of flexibility onto the shoulders of whoever writes the wrapper
script, but that seems okay to me.
