    # grep foo /etc/apache/httpd.conf

    I find that that's what I'm looking for, and I type

    # emacs M-.

That is something an advanced user will do occasionally.
Advanced users can easily turn off the splash screen.

(I didn't know about the shell key M-.  I expect to use it,
tho not for invoking Emacs.)

There are nonetheless beginners who habitually run Emacs with a file
name argument, and would never see the splash screen if it only
appeared with no argument.  The reason I made that change is that
I discovered this phenomenon.
