Would it be a lot more time to make SRFI-89 independent of `(ice-9
optargs)' given the differences you describe?

IMO it would look cleaner and be more robust in the face of changes in
`(ice-9 optargs)'.  It would also make sure the SRFI-89 implementation
is not subtly biased towards what's in `(ice-9 optargs)'.

What do you think?
