It ensures that perl 5 will choke if it gets asked to load the file, which
can happen on Windows. If you use bash/zsh on Windows then #! will work for
things run directly from the shell; anywhere else will be spotty at best,
as neither cmd.exe nor Powershell understand #! and neither do the Windows
spawn calls.
