Why is the main binary named `execlineb` and not `execline`?
What does the `b`-suffix stand for?

I believe the original execline didn't support blocks; then the block
syntax was added as execlineb; and then it turned out that block support is
so useful that having the old version of execline around was pointless.

(On my systems, I link execlineb to execline.)
