That still seems to fall foul of the "shebang only recognises one
command argument on some systems" problem described in this thread.
That is, on such systems the recognised shebang command would be
'/usr/bin/env perl\nuse'.

Would '/#!/usr/bin/env perl\nuse\ warnings;' work?

(Leaving aside that this becomes very ugly very quickly.)
