[Pharo-dev] New Image Command Line Handlers

We (Cami, Ben, and I) added some command line options to control preference
loading, which seem useful e.g. for integrators and in my original use case
of running an image off a USB stick on a foreign computer and not wanting to
pick up those preferences

There are two new flags:
1. --no-default-preferences = don't load from any of the default locations
2. --preference-file [/full/path/to/file.st] = load this one

They are independent, so there are four options now:
    1    |    2    |
                       - current behavior
    x                 - don't load any preferences
               x      - load the defaults and this additional
    x         x      - only load the specified file (not the defaults)
