"Git blame" says it was Aleksey. I'm not familiar with that either but 
this reminds me: I'd appreciate if this "--show=types" stuff that's now 
wedged into ldr_split_line(), could be moved to a separate 
function/functions. The function(s) can still be called from 
ldr_split_line - I just want the code separated for readability and 
mergability. As written now, it will be a royal pain to merge and it has 
already given me headache when debugging unrelated problems.
