Where's --load for 2.0.0?

After installing 2.0.0 from unstable distribution from debian repository


I tried:

   gnucash --load demo-zero-base.scm

but got error window with text:

   The file type of file /home/evansl/.gnucash/data/--load is unknown

This worked with 1.8.10 version of gnucash.  The download of the
2.0.0 source from:


contains, in doc/gnucash.1.in the following:

.IP --evaluate
Evaluate the guile command
.IP "--load FILE"
Load the given .scm file
.IP "--add-price-quotes FILE"

So, what happened to the --load command line option and what's
the alternative?  Type gnucash --help did not mention --load.
