I wasn't meaning that we should replace split with comb, only that the
default is specced in terms of comb, not split, so that it automatically
discards leading and trailing whitespace.

We may need to refactor the switch names though.  Seems like -a is
unnecessary if the pattern is specified, so maybe just three single
exclusive options:

    -a  autocomb on \S+
    -A  autocomb on pattern
    -F  autosplit on pattern

Presumably we could just warn on -a -F ':' and ignore the -a.

Hmm, though if ':' is a pattern it's an illegal pattern...would
need to be '\:' or some such...
