That makes standardizing command-line completely useless.

Perhaps we should follow shsh in that command-line-arguments returns a list
of the actual arguments (not including argv[0]), and (command-line)
returns (cons PROGRAM command-line-arguments), where
PROGRAM returns argv[0] if known and sensible, and "" otherwise.

Regardless, (car (command-line)) should be either argv[0] or some
value that indicates that argv[0] is unknown.
