That's not a bad idea. Unfortunately the current resource file mechanism
is not flexible enough to support the "key,preset" syntax. But OTOH, it's
always possible to extend the interfaces. Another problem is that there is
still the problem of how to handle different versions of the tools (which
might use different syntax for command-line options). :( But anyways, some
kind of preset mechanism is probably needed...
