Well, I see no reason to extend the Options banality.  We've already got
an extensible configuration language, what's wrong with folks using their
own modules putting in boolean directives?  Options is an NCSA backwards
brokeness feature.

Now, if you wanted to, for example, implement a generic "bitset" config
type with consistent parsing, and no bugs... more power to ya!  I'd rather
see a general routine like this, so that folks could use it in other
directives (like IndexOptions for example).
