Where did the "--name" option for Nautilus go?

Just noticed today that one of my shortcuts stopped working. It would start Nautilus at a specific folder with the --name option set to a specific value to it would be moved to my mouse position by Sway.

Today I noticed that this option no longer works. If I try to start nautilus --name=foo I get:

Unknown option --name=foo

Did this option just get deleted? Or was it renamed to something else?

I think it’s because Nautilus was ported to GTK4. --name was a GTK+ option (run for example gnome-terminal --help-gtk to confirm). GTK4 no longer handles command line options. See: docs/reference/gtk/migrating-3to4.md · main · GNOME / gtk · GitLab

I don’t know if there are other ways to achieve the same.
