Then, with Paul's stanza, you could just leave SHELL as /bin/sh,
couldn't you? ;)

If you're using `(getenv "SHELL")' somewhere inside your scripts, you
could even set SHELL in the stanza..., though, it does seem hairier to
manually add the same header to every one of your scripts, and that
might be what your `scm2bin' is doing, as far as I know (I think that
I'll go read it, now ;))....

But, I'm a little confused, now.... Just what kind of crontab entries
are you writing?
