Usually Skype for Ubuntu stars in the same online mode (Online, Away, DnD, Invisible) that you left it. Is there a command-line option or a Skype public API hack to start Skype for Ubuntu in invisible mode regardless of how I left it?

skype -h does not provide help but there could be an unducmented option. I suspect its no problem for the public API but I have zero experience with it.
