Indeed. All I want it to use Emacs as a scripting language to write
little utilities, and that they behave just like utilities written in
Perl or Python. 

My thought processes were heading in the direction that the hash-bang
--script option is very new and not yet completely thought through, and
that a long-term solution might lie in hacking the start process.
Perhaps the start process should behave differently when invoked in with
--script. I suspect that completely ignoring the site-start structure
could be suboptimal (if there are site-wide settings that are
non-standard), but it is clearly inappropriate to load lots of
irrelevant files (and not just because of the chatter to STDERR).

It should be acceptable to writers of emacs-script utilities to
explicitly load anything that is needed.
