     * This class provides basic command line handling for most examples.
     *
     * Most Paludis clients should support at least '--help', '--version'
     * and '--log-level'. If paludis::EnvironmentFactory is used to create
     * the environment (as opposed to, say, paludis::NoConfigEnvironment),
     * then '--environment' must also be an option.
     *
     * Clients are free to use whichever command line handling library they
     * prefer, but for convenience all Paludis core clients use a common utility
     * library with a much simpler interface than that provided by overly C-ish
     * getopt derivatives.
     *
     * The command line is a singleton -- that is, only one instance of
     * it exists globally. This avoids the need to pass around lots of
     * parameters.
