I don't really mind. I chose -executable as (a) that's the upstream
name* and (b) I considered that -cli could be confused with the Common
Language Infrastructure. I don't think there's any potential for
confusion with regards to the name as this is the canonical `agda'
executable. If you feel strongly about it, I don't mind changing though.
* yes, I know there's no problem in going with a different name. This
was just the path of least resistance
