Find attached a script for unix/mac os that sets the size of the screen in
the image file.

Arguably the VM should use a window extent of 0 at 0 as a "start me headless"
flag.  What do people think?  It would complicate things.  The image would
have to be located before any VM command line argument flags are processed,
and probably opened twice.  Seems like a lot of effort for little gain.
