Actually the wp_head event action hook is too late to enqueue a
script, if you want it in the header (as opposed to the footer).
That's because the enqueued scripts are printed during wp_head with
priority 1.  So a call to wp_enqueue_script in a function that's a
callback on wp_head will come too late.

A better place would be the template_redirect action hook.
