I consider X-style -foo options to be obsolete, and much prefer the
GNU-style --foo options.  I'm always annoyed when I type --foo to
Chicken and it gets mishandled.  As a first step to switching, I'd
recommend allowing --foo=bar options everywhere, and eventually
deprecating and removing the -foo options.
