I'm going to pull a David here and ask why you are trying to fight the
flow.  The behavior of IDL from at least version 4 (!) has been to
associate a save filename containing compiled routines with a
procedure of the same name.  I know that people have requested a way
to pass command line arguments, and that is a legitimate request.  But
otherwise, why not just do like the Romans do?
