the current binary package will not handle arguments except -d
the new one (there will be daily updates) will pass arguments to the
real ardour executable. however, there's no option for "nonrealtime"
mode, because no such mode exists - Ardour has no control over this -
its determined by the way JACK is started.

The only sense in which is does is that *if* JACK is not already
running (i.e. an attempt to connect to JACK fails) then it will start
JACK itself, and this likely defaults to RT mode. there's no good
reason to ever run JACK without RT mode unless you're a developer.
