I understand the use case for that option is piping a mail or news
message to `perl -x` to run a script contained within it. If that
use case is to be handled, it pretty much does need to be able to be
triggered from the command line, even if not with a single-char
I'd be in favour of either explaining why this ability is not considered
valuable (if that is indeed the case), or (preferably) restoring a
simple command-line-accessible way of achieving the same thing.
