I have seen gems which use flags on the shebang, which env
cannot understand on some platforms.

The symbolic link won't work for my particular purposes since
the gems are installed on a shared network drive.

I would propose that we have a command line option that
would change the shebang to '#!/usr/bin/env ruby', and
an option that let one set specifically the shebang.
