Must the mole be written in Perl?  If I drop a perl file in a directory, do
chmod +x on it and then navigate to it, bucktooth executes it.  If I do the
same with a bash script, it never executes the file (nor throws an error).
dbrowse will run in the folder, a two-line test perl script will run but I
can't get my bash script to run.  Any pointers will be appreciated.

I'm running bucktooth 0.2 with inetd in the Cygwin environment.
