Woohoo, great. :)

I think we can slowly start dumping the old syntax. There are only a few
things left to do with the new one, and then the other additions will only be
"on top" of it.

I remember that we (long time ago) agreed to use BSD. I'm not very big on
these things neither (hence GPL in nALFS :), so I don't actually remember
the reasons for that.

:) You should probably go with <options>, since it will become part of
the syntax, as we agreed.
