If you want behavior like Perl or Python (output to STDOUT), then you

That's not necessary, since the print family of commands will write to
STDOUT, and it is useful to be able to use message to write to STDERR.
Huh?  Then what do you want?  Do you want to see only STDOUT on the
screen?  Do you want to capture it in a file?

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.

Please do. I have already taken up this issue, but no one has answered yet.
