I think we're talking at cross purposes. What I'm moaning about is that
there is that even with "--script" there is a lot of unnecessary loading
going on, with the most visible effect of lots of chatter on STDERR.
Simply, that makes Emacs less useful for writing little self-executable
shell utilities. 

What would be nice would be to be able to write hash-bang utilities in
Emacs that behave like any other, with output going to STDOUT and
errors/warnings going to STDERR. We're not quite there yet but it
shouldn't be impossible. Maybe I should talk to the emacs-devel list.
