[Openmcl-devel] Command line arguments for binaries

AFAICS currently if binary created by Clozure CL receives
exactly one argument this argument is treated as name of
image.  Similarly, binary parses and interprets options
regardless if intend of developer.

This is problem for command line programs: one has to
use a wrapper to provide desired command line interface
(which significantly limits benefits from having a
binary executable).

I think that Clozure CL should check for embedded image
earlier and modify command line processing accordingly.
One way would be to have bitmask in the image and
process only options enabled by the bitmask.
