Actually I wrote --dry-run, --no-activate, --no-activation, --without-activation
on paper ... and then asked someone here what's the best:)
Well, I think this option will be rarely used and I guess it is mainly for use
in scripts. Option name says exactly what it is doing.
The name --dry-run in more generic, as user, I would expect it can be used even
for slot commands etc.
If you have better name for it, no problem to change it still.
