    Is your mind made up that this is the way Emacs must behave, or are
    there any arguments that might change your mind?

My mind is made up that we must arrange that beginners who always
specify a file name argument mostly do see the splash screen
information.  I'm willing to consider other ways of doing that
as long as I think they are effective.

    At least, with "emacs -nw" (as the crontab thing is called), it seems
    counter productive to show the splash screen, in my opinion.

I expect beginners mainly use window systems, so showing the splash
screen in the tty case is not so important.  Thus, I don't mind if we
don't show the splash screen when starting Emacs with file name
arguments on a tty.
