Hey guys, another idea for 3.0

It has been at times annoying for me that the console option parser in cake is not 100% compatible with getopts(), for example it is not possible to have required options or to concatenate flags in the same expression like "-pv".

Since getopt() supports windows now in 5.3, would it be wise to change the internal implementation to just use the function?

Cheers.

One nice thing about ConsoleOptionParser is you can provide options after positional arguments, which I don't think getopt() allows. It might be worthwhile updating the option parser to handle the -pv case. It wasn't something I originally accounted for as the previous option parser didn't support it either.

Well, I don't actually mind how it is implemented, I would just like those features happen :)
