While gimp --batch indeed accepts a script fu command (the "-" argument
is a special case to read the command from stdin) it is not that hard
to work around the missing filename argument.

Simply write a script fu script (e.g. called "script-fu-my-script"),
place it in the script directory (~/.gimp-2.0/scripts/)
and invoke it via

  gimp-2.0 --batch "(script-fu-my-script)"

thats it.
