By the way, I wonder if we should have explicit --input and --output
options to clarify the lstopo command-line.
For instance
    lstopo --xml file.xml file2.png
would be better written as
    lstopo --input file.xml --output file2.png

So basically, I am saying that --input/-i would be a superset of our
current --xml, --synthetic and --fsroot. And --output/-o would be
implicit when passing an filename argument on the command line. And we
could have --output-format/--of to enforce the output without looking at
the filename extension (and maybe --input-format/--if to enforce
