Some years ago I had the wild urge to set up Prolog code that would
determine the necessary command-line flags to sustain certain operations,
and which ones could be mixed-and-matched without affecting each other.
After a few days of work I gave up on it: even after reading the source
code, the multitude of operations seemed to be a hall of mirrors.

If I could wave a magic wand, I'd make a huge number of those options just
simply go away.
