Shebang : Make executable by setting the correct shebang and executable bit

script type
This script tries to reduce the repetitive work it is to make a file executable. It provides three functions:

SetShebang() which sets the correct shebang (e.g. "#!/usr/bin/python"),
SetExecutableBit() which sets the executable bit, and
SetExecutable() which calls the two functions above.

The SetExecutableBit() is simply stolen from http://vim.wikia.com/wiki/Setting_file_attributes_without_reloading_a_buffer . Thanks a lot Max Ischenko!

Put this file in your .vim/plugin folder and map a key to call SetExecutable. For example, in my vimrc, I have

map <leader>X :w<CR>:call SetExecutable()<CR>
