Launch an app from Radio with switches and a file

Andrew wants to launch an app with command-line params on Windows.

Basically he wants to shoot a command to the system and have it run it.

We couldn't find a verb that does it. Is there one?

launch.appWithDocument isn't good enough because it doesn't allow you to set switches through the command.

launch.anything just launches the app without any params.

Dear Bay Area friends..

I am coming to visit you!
Arriving Sunday, March 14, leaving Wednesday March 17.
It's a short trip, obviously -- I'm coming to participate in the WIRED Rave Awards.
I'm nominated in the Software Designer category, for RSS.
I'm staying in Berkeley.
Maybe we should have a dinner like last time?
Much love,
PS: Murphy-willing Andrew Grumet will have something exciting to announce that connects RSS with another nominee, in the same category: BitTorrent. We're very excited about combining syndication with BMO's. It would be cool to make the announcement on the day of the award ceremony, March 15.
PPS: BMO stands for Big Media Object.
