Hi Michael,

I understand what this patch does, but I don't really understand the
motivation for it, yet.

Why is this the "main feature" needed for sane gnu-ld and link command
line support?

It seems to me, that what you really need for those is a completely
separate option parsing table. I can see how this patch could be
useful if you wanted to accept the same options for the link.exe
parsing just with a '/' at the front, but that doesn't seem right to
me. It seems to me that the link.exe parsing or cl.exe parsing would
end up using a completely separate parsing table.

Can you explain?

 - Daniel
