Not a developer of Fossil, but this could have potential compatibility
issues in the future with unknown options being passed. Say someone
builds with `--with-butter=salted`. Then later on Fossil adds a switch
that has the same name `--with-butter=`, but it takes a different kind
of argument that is completely incompatible. If the behavior is relied
upon it cannot really be taken back once it is out in the open.
