I like option iii. I already implement option i to a degree, such as
checking that paths, ports, interfaces, files (etc, ...) aren't bogus
prior to starting. Even though all arguments in a group might be
satisfied, some may be mistakes. By checking that, I'm more or less
already doing what is described in option i.

I would think that most people do something similar?
