I will acknowledge that while one _could_ code a shell so that your
proposed change would break it, it would be a stupid, silly and ugly
way to code a shell.

That is, one _could_ code a shell to say:

1) If argv[1] starts with a '-', consume and handle as an option
(or possibly as a space separated list of options).
2) Presume the next argument, if any, is a shell script file.

I would be surprised if any of the major shells are coded this way.

I won't rest till it's the best ...
