So you didn't think Commons CLI was usable then :-(

I had thought the Avalon CLI and the Commons CLI projects had come
together to try and create a single CLI project for Apache Commons.  It
seems thought hat people are going back to doing their own thing.

I guess there is a lot of dithering going on.  Two aspects:

	1.  Annotations or not.
	2.  Fix Commons CLI or start again.

For Groovy, annotations is not an option in the short term, but is in
the long term.

It would be nice if people dropped their home brewed CLI libraries and
made one de facto standard.
