I think it is a good idea. Dennis do you want to give it a try ?

> It is recommended that the command-line utilities provided by Corinthia use a common
getopt model with -s single-letter options, --verbose word options and common shared options
(--version, --help, etc.).  stdin, stdout, and stderr should be redirectable (via the shell)
and the utilities should work with pipes (with appropriate encoding caveats).
> The same flavors can be used for all platforms, with filenames given in platform-specific
form (and "..." where needed) but parameters and options the same across platforms.
> The GNU getopt_long approach is widely-used.
