Same here.  Options range from autogenerating the tla option parsing
code to incrementally replacing tla (in itla) with a native
reimplementation as Scheme implementations improve.    But initially,
I would have no plan to change the tla option parsing code other than
to fix bugs/add options.

That's the theory, anyway :-)
