SPUG: dos2apache_unix and unix2apache_dos

Apache cares about the shebang line on Unix- and Windows-derived OS's.

I have to maintain classroom labs that can be run on either OS.  I don't
want to maintain two variants whose only differences are line endings and
the perl path on the shebang line.

Anyone know of a program that does dos2unix and unix2dos while also
correcting the shebang lines?  I've started writing it, but there are edge
cases with permissions, and incorrect line endings (because we have a
heterogeneous development environment with chaotic source control).
