Pretty cool idea. Are you aware of that in D you can, at compile time, parse the doc string and generate a command line parser for that particular documentation.

I wondered about that, after looking at the compile-time regex
stuff, which is pretty darn cool.

Looking at the git example [1], it seems a bit complicated and verbose to use after parsing. To determine which arguments was passed to the application.

While that is true, I'd argue that if you are writing an app with
a command line that complicated, then you have your work cut out
for you no matter what the system is you use.
