Perhaps instead we can replace the option series with a few extra
features? That is 'feature git-quiet' (or maybe just 'feature quiet')
and 'feature git-marks' (or just 'feature marks', since its' fairly
generic)?

This was why originally we aborted when we see an unrecognized option,
I agree that due to how the series has evolved this is not such a good
idea anymore.

Nope, parse_argv isn't called until after we encounter a non-git
option. I think there's a test that makes sure this works too.

Right.

I wanted to make it obvious that we ignore non-git options; depending
on whether we want to keep the option part of this series in the first
place I'll either handle it all in parse_option or drop those patches.
