How about the new OptionParser? Isn't that a highlight as well?
Short on the new OptionParser:
* It's ok to stack short options, so 'Compile -VbW Foo' is the same as
'Compile -V -b -W Foo'
* Long options can use equal sign: 'InstallPackage --same=remove Foo'
is the same as 'InstallPackage --same remove Foo'
* Options can come after arguments: 'SymlinkProgram Foo --force'

I too get strange segfaults since I updated my glibc. I can't run
Window Maker. I'll try to recompile/install it's dependencies linked
with the new version of glibc and see if that helps.
