[Mono-devel-list] Mono.GetOptions

I'm trying to use the Mono.GetOptions class, but it appears that certain 
styles of options are not possible to use with the current implementation. 
For example, to provide Windows-style syntax, I need to handle 
"/a:name=value". Unfortunately, GetOptions believes that this represents 
option "a" with parameter "name", and then another parameter value, which 
does not begin with "-" or "/", so it leaves it alone.

The problem is that ":" and "=" are both used to split the arguments, to 
permit "/b:banana" and "/b=banana". For certain parameters in Windows-style 
syntax, the context does need to be considered.

Has this been a problem for anyone else? Is anyone interested in a solution, 
is I happen to see about working on it? I see that Rafael did the last few 
bugfixes, so I don't know if the original author still is interested.
