sorry for my misunderstanding.

to see the optional configure-script options in brackets would really be
an idee i support!!

the current visualisation with 'normal' and 'italic' i more than once
just overlooked.

thus: my thumb is up!

maybe even one step further:
required option "parameter" : italic
requested option "<to be defined>" : normal
optional option "option" : [italic]

the new one has no high priority, but would be nice improvement.
