If it will run after the startscript then maybe :). It's already really
annoying when one wants to start an image without display from the
commandline and the image stops before the script runs, because the
sources file is not available and a dialog box is waiting for the user to
click OK... This should be fixed someday too.
Btw, IIRC 3.8 had something like this.
