[tomboy-list] Bring a note on startup

I meant something in the lines of what Doug just wrote.
Though your script, dough, it's a bit buggy here and there, no offense.
It needs some exception handling, right now a bad user input causes
the program not to do anything at all without dieing. Shebang and
usage message are also missing.

But I would like to bring up the issue I referred before. I add the
following command to my session:
tomboy --show-note="ToDo"

Problem is, it also shows the window with the list of notes. Is there
anyway to show only the note?
