I did a little research, and Unix #! handling is all over
the spectrum, so any Unix portability argument goes out
the window. Other than tricks involving /bin/sh, the best
you can hope for is "#!/usr/bin/env PROG".
It would be a worthwhile exercise to see if enabling full
argument parsing breaks anything (i.e., find out if this
is a win-win feature), although this is hardly likely to
be on anyone's priority list soon.
