Not really any need for this since you can e.g. just add a method

 com.blah.Foo.StartService (in a{sv} whatever_params);

to an object owned by the service com.blah.Foo and pass your
parameters in whatever_params. The only difference is that the program
launched needs to examine these parameters instead of the argv passed
to main().
