That was discussed before, for example "Proposed patch to fix issues
with command line file loading", and weltall even sent a patch [1] for
graphical preference. Outdated, of course, since it's a year old, and
Geany uses GtkBuilder now...

If we're going to finally implement this feature (and several people
requested it), I suggest that we apply #3312654 [2] first. The current
load_startup_files() is a bit of a mess, and becomes worse with the
new preference.

The thuth to be said, I had enough discussion on default session
loading CL files specified. Let's vote and decide it, shall we?..
