I vote for #1.

#2 gets "interesting" for apps that take command line arguments

#3 - VTK doesn't know when _you_ want your application to come to the  
front. Only _you_ know that so I don't think putting the fix in any  
deeper than the examples is a good idea.

Now, just to find some one with the time to update all the examples....
