I'm all for factorizing but... putting unrelated bits and pieces
together in a branch is not exactly factorizing, is it?  If these bits
and pieces formed a consistent whole, you wouldn't have to ask the
question of how to name the branch, methinks.

So, if you really think these should be in a different branch, I'd
suggest creating several branches e.g. org.xavier-grave.options,

BTW, how is options.ad[sb] different from GNAT.Command_Line (which
contains a binding to GNU getopt)?
