As far as I understand this is to prevent another application from
easily incorporating POV-Ray without acknowledgement or credit, while
still supporting such use.

However, presenting the full-blown GUI to some unsuspecting 3rd party
app user seems a bit like overkill (and can also be quite annoying for
pov users running batch scripts in the background). Would it be an
alternative to simply show a reduced splash screen in the Windows 
notification area (some nifty rendered image or animation, maybe
320 x 240 reading "Powered by POV-Ray rendering engine")?
