Hi Volodya,
 sounds great.
Better than my idea, which i had last night:
optionally passing a std::vector<std::string> in allow_unregistered, in
that all unknown options are collected.
But doing it this way, options become "neighbors" that were not in the
original options list.


PS: great library, thank you
