No one's talking about a command line as the only way to cause
this behavior. If you selected Exit to Background from the
menu, for example, you wouldn't need to use the command line.
However, a commandline option is very useful for, say, people
who want a jedit instance hanging around from the moment they
log in / start X / whatever.
