Maybe we should introduce a syntax change, because at least the
combination of a port number and C are very welcome.

What about a solution whereby the user can add any of these options, in
any particular order, all separated by colons? Would that be a lot of
work to implement?

That would probably get rid of the need for an extra parameter to
separate the port number from other options.

Do I understand correctly that you are not willing to implement such a
change? Can we at least agree on a new syntax if somebody (I?) would be
willing to implement it?
