[Mostly for my own future reference]: There's also the
parse_options_step() API to process options one at a time, which AFAICT
could be used in this case.

But having glanced at it again (but not come up with a patch) I think it
could be handled with OPT_CALLBACK + not caring about the order,
mostly. The "envchanged" could be passed as a custom flag probably...
