Thanks. Just one more thing to clutter your list...

IMHO, the --new option doesn't behave as expected. It always opens the 
last-opened project and promptly gives an error because that last opened 
project is locked. When I'm opening it to get a "new" instance of Wing, I would 
almost never want to open the same project twice. IMHO it should open with no 
project loaded.

Or else there needs to be yet another option to load empty or somesuch.
