Yeah, I've pretty much lost any interest in being
the champion of such a cause. I had thought that
the sequential nature of the commandline args was
solely the result of bad coding/planning, and
didn't realise that it actually served a purpose
-- I had no idea about using multiple flags to
render different sets of frames!

I'll focus on another way to send args to python.
I am pondering using the currently existing -P
with a CGI bastardization like:

blender -P 'cooltext.py?text="Howdy"&font="ariel"'

This way, we can support running multiple scripts,
each with different args, by using multiple -P flags

(If you can't beat `em, join `em)
