Normally calling "octave -Wq" should be the same as calling "octave -W -q".
But because the octave stub program doesn't use getopt, it doesn't handle the
options -W and -q correctly when they are specified together (either as -Wq or

And it's not enough to just check for the exact arguments "-Wq" or "-qW",
because these options can also be combined with other options (e.g. "octave
-qfHW"). The most robust solution would be to add getopt support to

Another option might be to check for an argument that starts with a single
hyphen and process the following single letter options manually.
