I was unaware of it, too. Looking at the OPT_PASSTHRU and its ARGV
counterpart, I think the original intent was that you'd pass through
normal last-one-wins individual options with OPT_PASSTHRU, and then
list-like options with OPT_PASSTHRU_ARGV. But here you've used the
latter to pass sets of individual last-one-wins options.

That said, I think what you've done here is way simpler and more
readable than using a bunch of OPT_PASSTHRUs would have been. And even
if it was not the original intent of the ARGV variant, I can't see any
reason to avoid doing it this way.
