The dev is quite open, and patches are welcome. You should review for development info.

There are a couple of outstanding patches that I have in my queue, I'd
suggest that you hold off a week or so so that I can flush them first,
as they impact on the same functionality.

There is a library GetOpt++ that is used for grabbing command line
options. A semi-trivial use is to overload the non option elements and
insert them into a vector.

I've been meaning to add something like this into the library by
default, but have been seriously time constrained for a while now.
