[PATCH 1 of 2] explorer: add /startfile switch for starting files from file managers

My understanding is that start.exe will not work because it must be
compatible with the windows version of start. In any case, I don't
think I could usefully share code with the rest of start.

Attempting to guess between unix and windows paths is not necessary (I
saw no reason not to do it, but I can remove it).

I would like to keep the distinction between .exe and other files so
that bug 5368 can be fixed.
