Since they're mutually exclusive, I would make TortoiseProc show an
error dialog box. That way, anyone calling it the wrong way will realize
it immediately.

simple ASCII encoding doesn't work very well. Paths in windows can have
any chars (except of course the well known exceptions like ?*...). A
path to a file like:
wouldn't work with plain ASCII (especially if the filename contains
chars which are not available in the default code page).
So I would stick to UNICODE (or at least UTF8) format of that file, but
not ASCII.
