How can I find the -c argument?

This isn't a bug, actually.  I'm wondering if there's any way to access
the string provided with the -c option to the shell, from within the
shell init files.

For example, if I run this;

    bash --login -c 'echo hi'

How can I find the string 'echo hi' from within my ~/.bash_profile?  I
tried the obvious but it isn't in $@ and it's not sitting in stdin
waiting for me.  Is there any way to retrieve that string from within my
shell setup?
