Some projects (such as kubernetes and docker) do not use the standard
'flag' package and instead use the posix complaint(ish)

package. It however appears that

Added a check for `flag.Parsed()`. This is not correct for programs
which don't use flag and thus `flag.Parsed()` will return false. This
patch broke two of the largest golang projects. If there were a way to
overwrite this I'd be willing to try to work around it, but breaking
properly functioning code in order to catch improperly written code
does not seem like an acceptable tradeoff.

I would like to see this PR reverted and would be happy to talk about
how to better address this if others have ideas.
