Seconding that. Excellent review, thank you!

Maybe we should make it "--line", instead.
The current "--one-line" conflicts with Git's "--oneline", anyway.
While getopt should parse that, it has potential to confuse users.
Imagine a call like "enum -1 3 7".
A fellow suggested this very shortcut, when we introduced him to enum.
It was his response to our demo of "-s ' '".

I'm seconding that concern.

Agreeing with Hauke on "1 and 10". Would
In order to produce three random numbers between 1 and 10
(inclusively), you would run
be a bad mix?
