Options has been considered a poor design choice for years.
Some of that might be due to the too-small bit-width it was
given, but Roy can certainly give you chapter and verse why
it's not a good thing.

In any even, there's been a ban on trying to extend it for
at least four years.  It would break too many things.  It
just isn't extensible.
