I disagree. In my options package they are the same thing.
Unfortunately, the latest version uses lex/yacc which is
ugly and unnecessarily complex, but Spirit would provide a
nice framework. My configuration files look exactly like
what users type at the command line. Maybe this isn't good
for some people, but I've found the consistency to be nice.
