Well, maybe "secondary" instead of second, since I used "subsequent"
in the previous paragraph.

-i is required only if you want to open CL files in a new instance,
instead of passing them to an already running one (explained under
"Command line options" before "Startup"). If you have a Geany, and
start another from, say, your DE menu (i.e. without CL), it becomes
(new instance) automatically.
