Due to long-standing convention of both styles in common use (with and
without whitespace separator), whitespace after "#!" is optional and
accepted by any Unix out there.
Debian policy is silent on the matter as far as I can tell.
I would prefer to keep the space separator, since it aids readability
and text navigation. As explained above, it doesn't harm portability
nor policy compliance.
