IMHO, using -Q for "-q --no-site-file" is fine, but adding all the
other turn-offs makes this switch too heavily loaded.  Why does it
make sense to combine  "-q --no-site-file", which basically means
``defeat all local deviations from the defaults'' with the rest,
which disable fancy features?  And what does visible-bell setting
have to do with turning off features?

I'd say let's make two options, one for "-q --no-site-file", the other
for --no-splash and the --eval options mentioned above, excluding the
visible-bell one.
