It seems that delaying positional argument parsing after all optional arguments are parsed would be clean and robust.

My understanding is that optional arguments aren't ambiguous and should be processed first and removed from the arguments. Then the current pattern matching done for positional arguments would work well (in one try).

If you think this would be a better patch I can give it a try.
