I guess this is an "ease of use" request.

[1] Provide better feedback to user about parameters
being used. (command line options passed in). I spent
countless hours wading through TRACE output and my own
debugging to discover that lists were being handled as
strings, and that options (v) didn't work, which
resulted in all my other command-line args being
scrapped.

This isn't a show-stopper by any means, but I think
would be nice to have.

thanks !

    This is a good idea. It would not be difficult to dump a
    bunch of details about what is going to happen before
    processing actually begins. This could be controlled via
    the -v option, so it could be turned on and off by the user.

    In version 3.0, when the -v flag is used some extra
    information of this sort is printed before processing begins.
