Why not simply check each non-option argument to see if it has a special
suffix (e.g. ms), and if it does, then replace the argument with the contents
of the file named by the argument? So that is e.g. the file "allfiles.ms"
contains "a.m b.m ... z.m", then

	mmc allfiles.ms

is equivalent to

	mmc a.m b.m ... z.m
