[PD-dev] -guiport vs other arguments

So I have startup in both directions working,  ('pd.tk' starts 'pd',  
and 'pd' starts 'pd.tk').  This means you can choose which wish shell  
to use on any platform, and it'll use that one.  Here's how:

wish /path/to/pd.tk

This means you can easily use any 'wish' and run Pd with it. It also  
makes it possible on Mac OS X to run pd in the Pd.app Aqua GUI, or run  
it in the wish X11 GUI.   Hopefully it makes the code cleaner too,  
much fewer #ifdefs.

Now I have a question: it seems that if I start 'pd' with -guiport,  
then it seems to ignore any other command line arguments and dumps the  
'-help' text.  Any reason why it shouldn't be possible to use -guiport  
with all the rest of the options?  Anyone know how to do this? :D
