That is something I do like about the windows format using / instead
of -. I have used a few windows command-line apps that use / to
specify options, - to remove something, and + to add something. Makes
more sense to me over all; would be nice to have program_options
support that style as well.

someapp /input=file.tst -optimize +abc
Means: the input is file.tst, you disable optimizations, and you
enable automatic bounds checking or whatever...
