Nobody is talking about "#!python2", but about "#!/usr/bin/python2".

The former, "#!python2", is actually equivalent to "#!./python2"; i.e.
the one in the current directory.

The difference between "#!/usr/bin/python2" and "#!/usr/bin/env python2"
becomes obvious when you have multiple `python2`s in your $PATH.
