Running scripts written in Clojure as an executable using Inlein

Do you sometimes wish you could create a smart, yet still simple utility? My usual dilemma is choosing whether to create a shell script to suit my needs, or to create a standard Java application. Now I have another handy alternative. I was just shown an interesting program called Inlein.

Inlein lets you to run Clojure written scripts without the need to care about its dependencies. This way you have all the libraries you could wish for at your disposal and yet the utility you are writing is an easily modifiable and readable text file.
