Very close to the commands I would use, but I would suggest putting a "$" on the
end of the match to make sure that "env python" is the end of the line. That
safeguards against them changing the shebang in the future and you ending up with
"env python22" if you don't notice the change.

sed -i 's|bin/env python$|&2|' management/commands/{dumpscript,pipchecker}.py
sed -i 's|bin/python$|&2|' utils/dia2django.py
