Well, as I understand this falcon language is not even uploaded to the
archive, so there can't be any other package which is depending on
#!/usr/bin/falcon, or did I miss something?

Emmets statement about the way of doing this, is imho the right way, and
it comes to the same result to what I said earlier.
