Should #!/path/to/perl -w be treated as comment, really? Compared to all these complexities where there is none and would have been a lesser sin, this is, hopefully, trivial to fix when there is time. Show quoted text

Yes, #!/usr/bin/perl actually IS a comment, it means nothing to Perl or Windows. It only has relevance in the context of the Unix shell. #!/usr/bin/perl is a shell command that says to launch perl. I'll leave this ticket open though, and consider adding a PPI::Token::Comment::Shebang subclass...
I've decided this won't be necesary. WONTFIX
