#! lines have to use an absolute path, but use of /usr/bin/env is a
great way to allow a PATH lookup.  Your code is not in a #! line.
Either way, libvirt's '#!/usr/bin/env python' and your 'exec python' are
both doing the same thing - a PATH lookup for the first available
python.  Like I said, it might not always do the right thing, but let's
wait until someone actually files a bug report about it, because it is
at least better than forcing a hard-coded call to /usr/bin/python.
