#833 Substituting for Notepad: /z flag?

SciTE (235)

When you try to make SciTE replace Notepad (through the classic Image File Execution Options->Debugger hack), it receives an extra command-line parameter, namely the path of Notepad itself.

Would it be possible to allow SciTE to accept a /z parameter in the very beginning, telling it to ignore the next parameter? I believe this is what Notepad++ does (or was it Notepad2?) in order to replace Notepad, and it works really well.

I've included a patch; it seems to be pretty trivial, if I haven't missed something.

    While not a bad idea, it would need to be documented (in SciTEDoc.html) and should work across platforms. The code would be better located in SciTEBase::ProcessCommandLine.
