good suggestion.

Hmm.. I dont know how to find the answer to that.

However, I did stumble upon


oh Good Grief, this is nuts. 9 different "arg parsing libraries". and
that's in just the "free software" space.
(btw, argtable appears to offer nothing of significance, featurewise,
according to the the
comparison page)

If we decide to package something that actually USES this thing, then
I'm okay with adding it in.

Until then, not.
Just say no to clutter.
