Summary: multitoken broken in program_options 1.33

Initial Comment:
Due to the changes in the parser, multitoken is broken
in program_options [boost 1.33]. Looking at the code it
is relatively clear why - the parser is too "greedy" and
eats up all the options following the multitoken one
without checking when to stop (for example, it should
stop once it encounters another option/switch).

If this functionality is to be deprecated as hinted in
some mails on the mailing list, it should be removed
from the public interface. If not, I guess it should be
fixed :)

The way to test it is to have a multitoken switch appear
_in the middle_ of the command line (definitely not at
the end) which should then simply eat all options to the
right of it.
