My plan is to rewrite run-parts in C or C++.  However, I probably won't
have that done until next weekend.  I've never done any perl programming
before, so i'd like to avoid making changes to the perl script unless
you think this bug is urgent enough to warrant it.

This still doesn't resolve the problem with --test listing scripts without
"#!".  Any clever solutions to that one?  :)
