The current implementation is not enough:

address@hidden:/tmp> cat /tmp/qq
#!/usr/bin/emacs --script

(message "The date is %s" (current-time-string))

address@hidden:/tmp> /tmp/qq
Invalid read syntax: "#"

When called with --script, emacs should ignore #! and the rest of the line
(I do not know if that line could continue on the following lines too).

Yeah, but you have to be masochist enough to use TeX!
