Kent has been proposing a procedure "command-line" which returns a
"nonempty list of strings representing the command line; first is the
executable name, remainder are command-line arguments"
(from https://r6rs.scheming.org/node/262#comment-1547, etc.)

Base, of course, along with everything else. :-P
More seriously, I'd put in a "script" library, along with the
environment variable accessing procedures which we haven't defined. I
propose get-environment-variable and get-environment, with semantics
equivalent to lookup-environment-variable and environment->alist from
(some version of?) Scheme 48.
