I suggest you review the original thread on this subject before a line

clearly what is being asked for. Making people turn that into a single
argument is not what was envisaged. See for example Pavel's original
example involving use of xargs where that's clearly not at all easy.
I can see (small) value in having a new option that is like -c but
interprets the string as a fully-featured script like -f.  (Small
because the same behavior can already be had with here strings in bash.)

The behavior should be exactly like -f, including all the behavior with
single-transaction and single-step modes or whatever.

But then I will point out that we currently don't handle multiple -f

If we can only have one I would say the value is vanishingly small.

As to -f, I don't see why we shouldn't allow multiple such options, only that nobody has bothered to do it.
