This is curious; "optarg" gets something, but it is not used (what
is passed to scoreopt_parse() is still "arg".

It merely is curious and not wrong; the actual parsing of the whole
thing is done in scoreopt_parse() and skip_to_optional_val() is used
merely as a substitute for "the thing must either be --break-rewrites
or must begin with --break-rewrites=" check that is done with
starts_with() and !strcmp().

It probably makes sense to allow skip_to_optional() to take a NULL
for the third parameter to clarify a callsite like this.  Otherwise
the readers will wonder who consumes optarg, and why it is OK for it
to be sometimes set and sometimes left undefined.

Likewise.

Likewise.
