IIRC, it would be possible, but then you would see the console being
opened and then hidden, which is ugly. You could work around it by
setting a shortcut to start Emacs hidden, but that doesn't help when
you run emacs.exe directly from the Start menu, for example. The whole
runemacs/emacs dance is here to avoid that initial "open console /
hide console" ugliness.
