You can run the current client with no preference file, and it'll ask for
a command line and where to send output. Currently, those are the only two
things that can be put into the pref file.

As a future direction for the MacOS client, how many people would be
interested in a faceless background app that wrote only to a file and
didn't open any windows or appear in the applications menu? Just drop it in
your startup items folder and forget about it...
