I'm aware of that.  But there's a few problems with that approach:

 * it doesn't work if you don't have /usr mounted yet

 * if you've installed a new 'env' in /usr/local/bin or ~/bin or
   whatever, it still uses the old 'env'

 * it reduces the space you've got for the rest of the command line on
   systems that limit the length of a #! line

It'd be nice to have a proper fix, rather than a 99%-functional
