I had a peek at the documentation and have two comments:

	As you can see from --bernhard, I tried to recreate new long
        options with the convention that they should start with a "--"
        and not just a "-". For the new options we might as well use "--"
	as their is no need for backward compability.

        I ask myself if using "awk" or python for this kind of reformatting
        would be better as it is more general and not much more verbose.
        Or the other way around: What is the advantage of using Statist
        for this?

Best,
	Bernhard
