I think the current behaviour is sufficiently unintuitive that we
need to fix it: after finding the sub command, we should scan the
whole of the rest of the command line for args.

What does -x and --x do ?  I couldn't find them in the help

I think the best policy is to ensure that arg flags never clash
between 'xm' and it's sub commands (I don't believe we currently
have any clashes), and to look for them in any position.
