This issue should include any startup configuration, such as making '-s' automatic (see #5233). There is no way to pass that when clicking an icon or selecting 'Open with Idle' on a context menu.  At present, the General tab has just 'Open edit window' *or* 'Open shell window'.

There should should be a new Startup tab.  There would then be room for a Text widget, which would be sufficient for simple scripts, such as Mark's example.  This would be friendlier than a separate file for people who do not even know what a console is.

Because user config files are (currently) used for all versions, we would have to make sure that default and user config files with the new sections still worked with older versions, and that older versions ignore and do not remove the new section.
