Xqt triaged this task as Low priority.

Could you explain why and in which is this necessary or needed or useful.

Obviously to allow customizing the edit summary. I ask because when I'm
running the script on my sysop account with no bot flag I'd like to
suppress the 'bot' mention on the deletion log summaries. Thanks.

Maybe a possible solution would be to suppress the "Bot: " prefix when the sysop account has no bot flag?

Sounds like a good plan to me.

I wouldn't do the same for normal user accounts because bots might not have a bot flag.

And what do you think to put a parameter in the file that defines the user as bot, that defines the presence of the Bot: summary prefix for all scripts ?

(i love cats)

Config option to show Bot: prefix by default or some different user-specified prefix seems cool to me.

This task has been assigned to the same task owner for more than two years. Resetting task assignee due to inactivity, to decrease task cookie-licking and to get a slightly more realistic overview of plans. Please feel free to assign this task to yourself again if you still realistically work or plan to work on this task - it would be welcome!
