Currently, most (all?) of the command-line arguments to zorbacmd are processed by a class called ZorbaCMDProperties, which is pretty ugly and tied in with the undocumented "properties" mechanism. So this change may require a little digging to figure out where to do it, and how.

It would make more sense to introduce the ability to name query files simply by listing them on the command line without a leading hyphen-option, eg. zorba /tmp/foo.xq /tmp/bar.xq would execute the queries contained in those two files. We could then deprecate -f, and remove it entirely in Zorba 3.0. If we do this, we need to ensure that the newly-added ability to use Zorba as a shebang command in Unix shell scripts also works without specifying any arguments on the shebang line; that is, #!/usr/bin/zorba 1 should work and return "1". -q would remain unchanged for specifying queries directly on the command-line.
