Could someone remind me what is wrong with changing the default value of
the --one-instance option to true?

I find it ridiculous to add 2 new options, and i find it ridiculous as
well to be the only player with several instances by default on Windows.
If it's only a matter of changing the habits of some people, do we
really care? It will still be possible to get the old behaviour back by
changing the preferences, so it's really not a big deal in my opinion.
