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