That was what I was thinking, too. And too much manual work to make it
really worthwile.

If you really want something that saves work, you'll want something built
into getopt(), such that it prints the help text, auto-generated from the
getopt argument, and reprompts for them until interupted (if interactive).
Better yet, with type-checking, like in AmigaOS 2.x and later.
