Hi Bruce,

    configury magic needed to actually make it work.  (details....;)

It would be very helpful if you could make a stab at defining that
configury magic :).  At least, it's not immediately obvious to me where
to start.

Also, I'd like to request a simpler change.  I don't see any purpose in
allowing the options like --version and --help to be set in the
configuration file.  All that really needs to be allowed is a single
setting in the config file, say "greeting", which overrides the "hello,
world" text.  Ok?

On the other hand, I guess that might actually make it worse, since part
of the point here is to reuse the longopts structure, right?  I don't
like duplicating that switch statement to handle all the options when
they are not really useful.  Hmm.  I'm not sure what is best.

I've added a --greeting (-g) option to allow it from the command line.
