It's not portable, so we need to implement our own (at least as a safe
replacement).  Also, "long" options are not much standard; many software
allow (I should say require) long options with just one dash ('-') and
this makes their use a bit confusing with the (misleading as well) habit
to group options that do not require an argument.

Apart from this, I have no objection, except that I don't like them very
