May be this is indeed a good idea.
Given that both --incremental and --markov respect --min-length and
--max-length, you could almost fully control internal mode via command line.

To completely control --incremental via command line, you would need to
extend the syntax to allow values for CharCount=95 and Extra=!@#$%, e.g.

--inc=my_test:95:"!@#$%" --chr-file=my.chr --min-length=5 --max-length=8

--inc=my_test:95 would lust specify CharCount, and skip the optional
Extra value.

--inc=my_test:0:"!@#$%" would allow specifying Extra and using the
default CharCount (from the .chr file).

I guess if we implement this, it will be after jumbo-8.
