    I think that would be cool, provided getopt has a license that allows it
to be SHIPPED with SableCC. The worst thing I hate is playing "chase the
library dependencies" when trying to play with a new toy. :-)

    While I have my little soapbox for a second, I would also like to propose
that SableCC have a switch that disables those dots while running. I have a
patch against the source that I use, but I would not want my name attached to
it, as it is not "very much object-oriented." Anything involving static fields
is pretty much as far from OOP as you can get. ;-)
