Do you have a suggestion for explaining such a command to someone who
want to run a script bu (1) doesn't know what a REPL is, (2) doesn't
need to know what a REPL is, (3) would be mystified by the behavior
resulting from forgetting the –script argument?

I agree of course that naming is hard, but it is also important.  Git
should be a sufficient demonstration of what happens when you design
command-line interfaces by a sequence of cumulative least-effort
