I see the value in having "$PTII/bin/vergil" start up the graph editor
instead of bringing up what we call the welcome window.  Initially, 
I think our idea was that there were multiple tools (graph editor, fsm editor,
icon editor, expression evaluator etc.) and that it was unfair
to emphasize one tool.  However, I'm not so sure that this is as
applicable as it once was.

Also, if you want to start with a particular model, one can start
from the command line:
$PTII/bin/vergil foo.xml

However, foo.xml must already exist.  This is partly because we 
do not necessarily know which editor to bring up for an empty file, though
we could always bring up the graph editor for .moml files.

To do this, edit $PTII/ptolemy/configs/full/welcomeWindow.xml.
I'm not totally what edits to make, but that is the file to edit
for Ptolemy.

The way this works is that $PTII/ptolemy/vergil/VergilApplication.xml
gets the default configuration and 
calls VergilApplication._createEmptyConfiguration()
