[PD] using alternative preference files

I am planning to ship a striped down standalone pd versions that will 
provide a one click option to start a patch+interface. This will allow 
to run patches like applications without depending on any user 
preferences. Everything comes out of the box. It turns out that this is 
much easier on windows than on osx. (sorry, no tests on linux yet). One 
thing I don't know right now is where I find the settings which plist pd 
will use. I know that pd vanilla and pd-extended are using different 
plist files, is that defined in pd.tk? I need to provide a preferences 
file that has the -nogui option plus a relative path to the patch that 
should be started...
hans, do you have some (online) docs, how the pd.apps are created? I 
know that the startup process of pd is slightly different than on osx 
(wish starting pd), I wonder if I have to change the app if I want to 
run a -nogui version?
thanks again for any help.
