Command Line Args

First command line argument sets the refresh rate in hertz during active icon changes. Default 60. Recommended to sync to your monitor refresh rate or higher. When no changes are being made program goes to sleep and awaits for events triggered by UIAutomation to restart the repositioning thread allowing it to drop to 0% CPU usage.
