[Python-apps-team] Bug#527473: pylint: refers to global python interpreter

Package: pylint
Version: 0.14.0-2.2
Severity: wishlist

pylint refers to `/usr/bin/python' in its shebang line.  It would be nice
if it could use `/usr/bin/env python' instead, to run under the Python
interpreter the user wants.  Use case: if you have a private instance
created with python-virtualenv you really don't want to run the global
interpreter but the one in your path to find all the libraries in use.
