It is already possible for command-line options to be MPM specific.  This
is a requirement for Windows.

That's great, but -X was removed in favor of -DONE_PROCESS, which executes
the exact same logic that -X used to implement.  We had this discussion
about changing -X for -DONE_PROCESS a while ago, and the decision was to
keep -X out, and stick with -DONE_PROCESS.

I am willing to go either way, but either we use -DONE_PROCESS, or we use
-X.  Having two ways to implement the same feature is, however, is a
non-starter in my mind.
