If you only need it for certain files you can also set it as a file

That would require the style system to be able to cope with key=value
options.  If the keys and values are only dumped into the list of
strings we have now, the implementation would not require much effort.
But doing it right would probably require to be able to associate
package options with the package and values of key=value options with
their keys.  And that would likely be a greater undertaking.
