If we want a portable hook script to run as part of a regression test
suite, we can write the script in Python, since we *know* Python is
available. You can get the path to the current interpreter, e.g.:

   python -c "import sys; print sys.executable"

So let's have the test suite code do one of two things:

   - On systems that support "#!", write out the hook script directly
     in Python, putting sys.executable after the "#!".

   - On Windows, write out a bone-simple .bat script that just invokes
     sys.executable on the real hook script, which, of course, is
     written in Python.

(I don't know if we have to worry about systems that are not Windows
but don't support "#!".)

There is no reason to have portability problems in our hook scripts if
we are already running an entire regression suite on a system! :-)
