[squeak-dev] startup time command line (or dropped files) arguments

How are command line arguments intended for the image supposed to be dealt with these days? It’s an awfully long time since last I looked at this area and the code I’m seeing in the image is… convoluted.

I need to be able to handle some simple cases for Scratch startup and we seem to have completely changed how that area is handled. I have come across (and reeled in horror) code in ProjectLauncher, AutoStart etc but so far I don’t see anything to make it  all make sense in my head. I don’t suppose anybody knows of a correct wiki page? Not found one so far.

Maybe I need to drop one or more of the current startup related classes and write a ScratchStart class?
