This appears to be due to support for the (undocumented) PATHSCRIPT
option, whereby the path is searched for the runscript, and therefore
the startup files must be read first so that PATH can be set properly.

Did you note this line near the top of zsh_main():

|    for (t = argv; *t; *t = metafy(*t, -1, META_ALLOC), t++);

i.e. all the argv arguments are metified early on.

How is the patch below?  I can add doc if you like it.. one open
question is whether you want $ZSH_SCRIPT to be unset or empty when not
running a script; currently it would be empty, which might be useful
for detecting whether zsh is providing that parameter.

Didn't touch this one.

Oooh that's tricky, yes all are a variety of linux distros, mostly
debian/ubuntu and FC/RHEL/Centos.  Still would have to parse it and
deal with the nul byte separators, yuck.
