in order to not hinder the addition of important new flags/parameters
to modules while keeping things optionally easy it would be good to
implement some expert mode to the parser.
The flags and parameters for advanced users should be hidden by
default (maybe by using an extra definition in order to "tag" them in
the source code). Then e.g. by setting a variable they would become
visible in the help text and GUI.
Probably they should be always accepted when being invoked.
Any thoughts if such mechanism would be complicated to be implemented?
