Starting emacs with an unknown option, e.g.,
$ emacs -nv filename
should fail right there on the command line, instead of having to wait
for emacs to bring up its windows, etc. just to tell you the same
thing: "unknown option."

emacs --help doesn't need to set up all of emacs to give you its
output, so why should mistakes like emacs ---help, etc.

maybe emacs should check around all the places it wants to check for all
legal options before starting to draw windows.
