Erm, how does it do that?  The shebang line is a shell thing that goes
back to the 1970s, and nothing to do with the webserver.

That's a way to integrate your own language.  But it's your proprietary
stuff.  If it was CGI, you'd need
AddHandler cgi-script .mth

(or alternative CGI driver, but things like mod_perl and mod_python
work rather differently, and CGI is not their primary purpose).
