It's only lazy if you don't want to/don't need to test the snippet, which
was kinda obfu.  Maybe if you threw in a test suite with that snippet...
But even then, I want more than just this feature (e.g. the way
Getopt::Long detects undeclared options), without having to go through the
very unlazy process of wheel reinvention.
