   That's the way argp requires it. However, it was not
   platform-specific option handling I was talking about.

argp doesn't require it that way (mixing argp and weirdo syntax IMHO
is a bad thing), it is just how it was done.  What I had in mind was
more of a shell script or whatever that accepts the platform specific
syntax, and has something machine readable to processes before
printing it to the user.
