    You want people to write
    #!perl

    instead of

    #!/path/perl

    . Ok. Make them write

    #!/etc/shells/perl

    instead, and make sure /etc/shells contains right symlinks. No kernel
    modification needed.

    Or just make sure everybody has perl installed in /usr/bin or at least
    has /usr/bin/perl -> /real/location/of/perl. [Right way, IMO]
