Great, I like those little details. It hate having to go to wikipedia to know what a "Loveland" is.

I can have a go at the parsing if you want. I really think we should use the provided getopt stuff if it can help us at all, and in this case it seems it has exactly the functionality needed.

Given --device=1,2, what should the parser do? Fill an array somewhere?

Not sure what you mean. What will be disabled? Due to how getopt works, --device and --devices will really be the exact same option to John (just like you can say -t instead of --test). So you can just as well say --device=1,2 and --devices=3.
