    To the best of my knowledge, you're allowed exactly one option (which
    will go before the filename).

Are you saying that Emacs would be called with two arguments,
the option and a file name?

If so, we should not use -batch for this.  To special-case the
combination of --batch and a file name is a double-level kludge,
because each of those arguments normally has a different and
incompatible meaning.  For the combination of the two to do something
special is too inconsistent.

Let's make a new option --script for this purpose.
