in reply to easiest way to read multiple word command arguments

Is there a good reason you don't just use Getopt::Std or Getopt::Long, and then require that multiword input get quoted? e.g.
my_script.pl -a one -b 'two words' -c 'three words here' my_script.pl -a 'two words' -b oneword -c 'four words here now'

This would seem to be more in line with *NIX tradition.
