The approach you described is quite similar to what I wrote earlier this
week and posted to my web site. A visitor suggested I submit my idea to this
discussion. Hopefully it will provide you at least one 'concrete
implementation' to review and compare with your idea.

Sorry, I'll try again. Let's assume that CLA is a command-line parser class.
CLA will contain the ability to parse several types of options (e.g., -foo,
--bar=value). However, we know that CLA can't always do everything that the
user needs, so CLA needs to be extensible to be able to meet the needs of
these users.

If that didn't clarify things, I'll wait until I look at a concrete
implementation of a command line argument parser and describe how it is or
could be extensible by user-defined parsers.
