regtool 2.11.1 need a way to specify leading "-" in values

I believe there is no way to specify values with leading "-" in regtool.  I expect the same applies to keys.  An "end of switch processing" switch would be useful, forcing 'regtool' to interpret all remaining arguments literally.

% regtool -s set '\HKCU\Environment\MAVEN_OPTS' "-Xms512m -Xmx3072m  -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote"
regtool: unknown option -- X
Try `regtool --help' for more information.

% regtool --version
regtool (cygwin) 2.11.1
Registry tool
