Bug Description

I find some minor issues with the guake command line arguments.

I'd like to add an extension to the Nautilus menu to "Open in Guake." It is easy enough to try to manipulate guake from a command line, with guake -n appearing to open a new tab, however this seems vague in the usage: -n NEW_TAB, --new-tab=NEW_TAB I've passed arguments to this, but they don't seem to do anything, and not passing an argument fails.

In addition, the toggle visibility should have an optional argument that enforces VISIBLE or NOT_VISIBLE instead of just a simple toggle. Alternatively a VISIBLE flag could be exposed which would let my script check whether it is already visible or not.

I love guake, and may submit a patch for the above changes, but I wanted to see if anyone had any ideas whether this wouldn't be necessary or not.

Thanks!
