I think this process makes sense.

IMO, the programming language should allowed to be /usr/bin/falcon.
Changing the name of the interpreter will mean that any program that is
supposed to be interpreted by falcon will need to be patched. OTOH,
renaming the binary in Dennis' repository management thing has very
limited consequences.
