--- Comment #8 from James Cloos <> ---
I have to join the choir against this change.

The change is in direct opposition to posix.

All command line parsing must be last wins.

Shell aliases, functions and scripts all require that.

Last wins is also easier to program.  This change means you have to
check each option as to whether it already has been specified; last
wins means that is not needed.

It may be that last wins came into being because the early coders
didn't think of the possibility of specifying an option more than once.
 But even if so it is not standard and How Things Are Doneā„¢.

The distributions will all have to patch around this brokenness anyway.
