Hi George,

That basically means that my doc isn't clear enough :-(

There is no special "list of packages". What I refer to is a command
line with multiple package arguments, either package names or -e <Expr>

The point is that "-m manifest.scm" and package-name or -e arguments
are mutually exclusive.

The problem I had with formulating this is that package-name arguments
are never explicitly mentioned in the documentation, only options are
documented. The only way to know that you can just list package names on
the command line is looking at the examples.

Any idea of how to do this better?
