Good idea. ruby seems to work the same way. python does too but with a slightly different definition:

C:\> ruby -h | findstr strip
  -x[directory] strip off text before #!ruby line and perhaps cd to directory

C:\> perl -h | findstr strip
  -x[directory] strip off text before #!perl line and perhaps cd to directory

C:\> python -h | findstr skip
-x : skip first line of source, allowing use of non-Unix forms of #!cmd
