Unfortunetly, this is not what I was talking about. What I want is to be
able to parse my own options contained in the command line.

For example let's I want to use xinerama on the first screen would be
something like that :
          vlc --xinerama 0

I think this more clear now. I can't figure out (but I am very tired)
where this code is declared into the tree.
