Goody... another game-based ADPCM format. I wager we could push it
through a stock IMA ADPCM decoder and get correct sound.

Uh oh... please don't rock the boat by suggesting certain accepted
programming practices. This is what I predict: The Guru will say, "send
a patch" indicating that you are welcome to revise the program to use
the getopt facility. "He whose name ends in 3" will flame back and
rabidly denounce all that is GNU (gcc, autotools, getopt, etc.) and the
situation will just degenerate from there.
The short answer for not using getopt: That's just the way it is. :)
