OK, I just put the two manpages next to each other and now
I understand the meaning of "is heavily inspired by". ;-)

Let me change my question: What is, from your point of view,
the difference between "--colsep" and "--delimiter"?

Or is 'colsep' "just an enhanced version" of 'delimiter',
that trims the items and uses Perl Regular Expression
instead of simple characters?
