That's a bind. I'm going to have to cave in and switch to 2.3 at
some point, but I'd like to hold out for a while longer.

'create' is the only sub command that really suffers from this,
so could we just temporally hack the parsing to call getopt again
on the arguments[1:] and append to the list? Not pretty, but...
