Hello, all,

I'm wondering how other people feel about the current order of options processing? I really prefer it when my command line options are *it*, so to speak. When something doesn't work quite right, I don't really like having to 1) remember that I have a configuration file out there (since I've never used one before this release - okay, call me lazy ;-) and 2) figure out which option(s) in the configuration file (as there are quite a few!) are conflicting with my command line options.

What are the pros to the current order that I'm missing?
