I would not like to go with --enable-python2 as that implies it is an
conscious choice with the understanding that py2 is on the box. Given
the current ability to detect and hence correct the python shebangs, I
would think we should retain it as a more detect and modify the shebangs
option name. (I am looking at this more as an option that does the right
thing implicitly than someone/tool using this checking explicitly, which
can mean different things to different people, if that makes sense)

Now "correction" seems like an overkill, maybe "conversion"?
