Thanks for writing this!

BTW feel free to send patches or make suggestions for the javadoc, I'd
like it to be as clear as possible.  (Code changes are ok too :-)

Nurdin> parser.add(new Option ("long-name", 'l', "description of long name",
Nurdin> "<long name variable>"){});.

The GNU convention is that meta-syntactic variables are all uppercase.
Eg from appletviewer:

    compatibilityGroup.add(new Option("encoding", Main.messages.getString

In the help this looks like:

  -encoding CHARSET    specify the HTML character encoding

Nurdin> Parser parser = new Parser("ftrace", "0.0", true) {

One thing we have in Classpath is a ClasspathToolParser class, which
is a subclass of Parser that sets the version number appropriately.
This idea may make sense for frysk as well.
