I find this interesting. I have a few questions ideas:
 - Does it interop with boost.program_options ? It would be nice to be able
to trigger behaviour from the command line or the console in a unified way.
 - How would passing parameters to the said functions work ?
 - It would be fine to be able to read a list of commands from a file for
having a small script languages.
