We use the old Excalibur/Avalon CLI in JMeter. There were some minor bugs.
As the original project seemed to be dormant, we incorporated the
source into JMeter
and fixed the bugs. The full package was then made available to CLI.

Unfortunately, there is still no release, but if you want to use it,
the code is at:

http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jakarta/commons/proper/cli/trunk/src/java/org/apache/commons/cli/avalon/

Test cases are at:

http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jakarta/commons/proper/cli/trunk/src/test/org/apache/commons/cli/avalon/

This has been in use in JMeter for some while now, and no further bugs
have been reported.
