Can't really agree with this - redundant fields have the tendency to
become inconsistent, and if you use those fields for debugging it will
get even harder.

You don't know how long the "concatenated" option string is either. And
"concatenating" the options just to parse them back into single options
in finalize_options seems more work than just growing the argv array.
