[Pharo-dev] New Image Command Line Handlers

It doesn't really fit our "backport bug fixes only" policy. When I backported the completion stuff because it was too cool not to, it was a week-long hassle chasing collateral bugs. But what I've been doing for these types of things is merging into the released version, saving the packages online, and customizing my own images with them. It's been working pretty well since the released versions don't change very much.

Good news.

If by default on Windows, it would be another default than pharo\ it would be great as it would be nicer with zeroconf fetching pharo-ui and pharo (headless)

Are those changes going to find their way in Pharo 2.0?

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)
