Hi bug-gnu-emacs,

Event with --script, Emacs still displays its help when passed --help.  This is 
confusing for users (they might write emacs --script some-script.el --help 
expecting to get help on the script, but instead they get Emacs' help), and it 
force ELisp scripts to use --usage or some other harder-to-guess synonym.

Could this be changed so that emacs --script a.el --help does not show Emacs' 

More generally, could we guarantee that options that appear *after* "--script" 
aren't processed by Emacs itself (and instead left to the script)?  Or would 
that break things?
