Originally I thought startlazarus just passes parameters on to the lazarus binary and handles the "File > Restart" (and Restart after Build) feature of Lazarus.

But at closer inspection I saw it does splash screen handling and MessageDlg() calls as well, which needs to be GUI.  But I'm still confused. When I start Lazarus without the help of 'startlazarus' I also see a splash screen, so why does 'startlazarus' also handle a splash screen? That's duplication of the same thing.
