This might be confusing because a script is usually a text file which is
interpreted (as a whole) by a language interpreter.

An e-script is not that.  An e-script is a text file with free form
notes.  Additionally, some lines could run emacs-lisp code (one line per
key press) and some lines could be "code" lines that are sent (one line
per key press) to an associated interpreter buffer.
