Hi Rich,

I skimmed v1 of this patch and saw nothing wrong.
As mentioned on IRC, I did wonder if it'd make sense to
warn whenever format=... is omitted.

One comment below.

Seeing this makes me wonder if using asprintf would be worthwhile.
Of course, that would mean handling allocation failure and freeing
the resulting buffer before returning, but it does render the "64"
unnecessary, and makes the code a little more robust to addition
of a few long_named_option=on options that would exceed the slack
provided by 64.
