Hah, well the Guix command-line options are still pretty well documented
for the fact that there seem to be, like, a billion-zillion of them!
Must be testament to the coding standards in the project :-)

Also, there are some corner cases used in Guix that are definitely not
yet supported in Config:
- the special '--' command-line param
- I think it was Guix environment that supports a 'positional keyword
  command-line parameter' — that's definitely still off the cards

Anyway, yes, must release!
