Take a poll to find what users find useful? I'll start -- here's my favorite
curl command, extracted from a script:
    [ -f ${FILE} ] && TC="${FILE}" || unset TC
  ( set -x
    curl --location --fail --show-error ${TC+--time-cond "$TC"} \
        ${EMAIL+--header "From: $EMAIL"} \
        --remote-time --xattr \
        --dump-header "${HDRS}" --output "${FILE}" "$_at_"
