--script is an option to the notebook server, so that whenever you save a
notebook, you get a copy of the .py script as well. nbconvert has to be run
as a separate command when you want to do a conversion. Currently, --script
relies on a separate mechanism to write notebooks to .py files, but that
mechanism is being removed.

We'll reinstate --script for IPython 3, using the nbconvert machinery to
write notebooks, but it will be deprecated.
