I think I agree with a comment earlier in this thread. I don't think command
options are the place for this type of configuration. Ideally, you'd want all
the configuration in the ini file. If you really need to override some ini file
setting, maybe using an environment variable would be the way forward.

Bottom line: I want to keep the number of command line options small.
