I want to add a file to iTunes from the command line. I can't use the Automatically Add to iTunes folder, because then iTunes will rename the file, and I don't want that. I can simply type iTunes filename. That does add the file to the library, but iTunes also plays the file, which is no good either.

So, how can I add the file, so that it doesn't get renamed and doesn't get played?

@Kent - that answer uses the Automatically Add to iTunes folder, which I can't use for the reasons stated in my question. –  Mark Barnes Jan 9 at 23:34
    
Ah -- Somehow missed that, even though you bolded it. Sorry for the noise. –  Kent Jan 9 at 23:40
    
Thorough scrubbing of the internet seems to indicate that no option now exists. The last version to support this option is iTunes 10.3.1, if you want to downgrade. –  Caleb Xu Jan 10 at 0:09
