Actually none of the shells require the #!/bin/sh type of thing if you
are invoking the script from the shell you want to execute it.

The purpose of it is to allow you to invoke the script from somewhere
other than the shell.

A simple example, if you write a csh script, then bash would require
#!/bin/csh to cause the shell to be swapped out.  Without the
#!/bin/csh, bash assumes it is native bash script.
