Okay, fair enough, I suppose what I really meant is that while POSIX
defines the behavior of getopt, getopt is not standardized as the
de-facto command line parsing behavior. Most GNU tools don't comply
with it strictly (--long-options aren't POSIX) and plenty of common
tools don't follow either GNU or POSIX conventions (X uses
-longoptions, for example).
So the question really was, what style of command line parsing is
