I'm interested in a more general approach to extend Boost.ProgramOptions
with new parsers. Then you could add a CGI query parser while I could add
a parser which reads configuration data from JSON files. Then however
Boost.ProgramOptions would need to support something more sophisticated
than key=value pairs. I'm not sure if this can be easily generalized?
