I've queued the first couple in this series, but can't say I'm excited
about stuff like this.

We have far too many command options already. Per-command switches are
not the way to make a better, more powerful tool. Instead, we should
focus on generic facilities. For instance, this feature is rendered
redundant by generic templating support, which is massively more
flexible.
