It's very unusual, but I can't think of any crisis it causes.
One minor annoyance: Windows doesn't support #! magic headers, and a very few-and-probably-ignorable old Unix systems don't either. There, commands written in an interpreter like perl, python, or shell can't be kicked off just by a #! reference at the top (standard Windows' shell is incompatible anyway, so it's just as well in the case of shell).
I don't see this as a roadblock, though. On those systems, you could
create trivial stubs that just invoke the interpreter (e.g., perl) and the
real program. In the Windows case, you can use Windows' miserable
excuse for a command processor to do that very easily.
E.g., if "cg-update" is a Perl script, then you can create a file "cg-update.bat":
perl \path\to\cg-update %*
(That requires Windows NT4 or better. MS-DOS didn't have %*, so you needed: perl \path\to\cg-update %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9 It's hard to imagine an MS-DOS git user though.)
