    Another aspect of command-line option processing involves what I call "qualifiers." When building an application, some options might be required. Other options might be completely, well, optional. Still other options might require one or more different options to clarify or modify the behavior of the primary option. Some options might be mutually exclusive. I think that you get the idea.
    While we can implement rules and program logic to enforce these "qualifiers," it might be nice to have something in a table or similar so that our application need not have pages of ad hoc code to do the work.
