> Using the current HelpFormater and Options classes it is impossible to print command-line
options in the same order as they were added.
> In some applications this is critical, since option grouping is important for understanding
how to use a program. Also, the programmer might have good reasons for adding options in a
particular order. The default could remain printing sorted options, however.
> Two small changes need to be made to allow this:
> 1. Change to use LinkedHashMap instead of HashMap in Options class:
>     private Map shortOpts = new LinkedHashMap(); // keeps original order by default
>     private Map optionGroups = new LinkedHashMap(); 
> 2. Change the "null" formatter option in HelpFormatter to actually skip sorting:
>     public void setOptionComparator(Comparator comparator)
>         this.optionComparator = comparator; // allow null values, default ordering
>     }
> Fix #2 above isn't strictly necessary, but would avoid forcing users to create boiler-plate
code for this.
