Yes, that's exactly what I suggested.
To make `emacs -batch <file>' behave like `emacs -batch --load <file>'.

To bad.  It seemed like a very natural extension of `-batch'
since `emacs -batch <file>' is generally useless anyway (it
just visits <file> and exits).
If we want to use something else, it would be good to provide a shorthand
for the cases where the OS only takes the first 32chars of the #! line
into account.
