Would a patch to execute "startup configuration code" be welcome?

One thing I've often wanted in guile is the ability to execute, from
the command line, various bits of code, via multiple command line
args, whose presence wouldn't have *any* effect on further option

The "-c" option isn't appropriate for this because only one -c is
allowed, and when present causes guile to unavoidably quit after the
given code is executed.

The place this is particularly useful is if you want to create guile
scripts that are customized in a particular way.  For example:

  export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/dir/with/sub-lib/needed/by/
  exec guile \
        -??? '(set! %load-path (cons "somedir" %load-path))' \
        -??? '(use-modules (some special customization))' \
        -??? '(initialize-something-important)' \

Would there be any interest in a patch to accomplish this, and if so,
what character should ??? be?
