Fritzing wrapper ignores command-line arguments

Bug Description

Fritzing is implemented as a wrapper that does:
cd /usr/share/fritzing/parts
exec /usr/bin/fritzing.real

That means that any arguments, like -h, are ignored. It would be better if the second line was:

exec /usr/bin/fritzing.real $@

(or $* or whatever your preference is).

Any chance Ubuntu could update to Fritzing 0.9.4? 0.9.3 has some annoying bugs, like ignoring the -f argument. I wonder if this wrapper is also the result of an 0.9.3 bug, and could maybe be dispensed with if you moved to 0.9.4.
