Windows 7: Default Program command line switches?

Default Program command line switches?

This seems to be an area where something working got broken. When setting default programs for a file type there seems to be no method in the user interface to specify any command line switches.

This is problematic especially for browsers that have command line switches with no corresponding settings.

There should be a better method than hunting down the command string in the registry and editing it. I tried using the Default Programs Associate a program with a File Type and using a shortcut with the switch. It didn't like it.
