Not sure about this, but option for going directly into lobby at game startup is for power users good.

Yes. Just thought about have it more into gui, as the code makes it realy easy to implement. For an easier on-switching and saving into options settings, it might be really helpful. Especialy, if focus is on lobby anyway, as online player usual are always in the lobby. If more buttons come to lobby D1055, then it's even more nice, as to focus to the lobby.
I love this, once new buttons get to lobby (should there be a button for mod selection and join by ip? :) ).
But needs quitting game when leaving lobby. :)
Its good for hardcore MP players. Not sure how devs feel about us skipping main window.
If its a command line option I'm glad too, thats how i run game anyway.
But we have the lobby and confirm hotkey now (D817), no more need for the mouse interaction.
A better implementation would be a command line option and for windows users a "0 A.D. (Multiplayer Lobby)" shortcut on the desktop.
Having this as a config option means that lobby players who want to see replays, options, structure tree or anything else first have to enter the lobby and then leave the lobby.
I know there is a a patch to add every button of the main menu to the lobby, but I'm not convinced of that either.
