Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.260. That is the most recent version we know about.

This file starts with the #! sequence that marks interpreted scripts, but it is not executable.

There has been some discussion to allow such files in paths other than /usr/bin but there was ultimately no broad support for it.

Refer to Bug#368792 for details.
