I don't think this is valid. Although it would be possible to
implement a kernel that searches the path for the interpreter to run,
I doubt it's standard behavior and it's probably frowned upon for
security reasons.

It works on windows only because the kernel has no idea how to execute
the script and the shell instead does the work behind the scenes..
