Getopt::TooMany: looking for a perfect CLI processorby Dallaylaen (Chaplain)

Dallaylaen has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hello dear esteemed monks,
While Getopt::Long is a great module, I started noticing it lacks some features, like help generation or ability to stop processing arguments on first non-option. So I looked at cpan search for "getopt" at https://metacpan.org/search?q=getopt and I'm overwhelmed by the number of modules that are already there.
What I would like to get is (apart from just "processing the command line the way Getop::Long does"):
1. Generating help on the fly (Getopt::Helpful does that but seems unmaintaned);
2. Object-oriented interface via instantiation and accessors/mutators, not inheritance:
3. I would love to add any other features I find missing.
So what are the latest and greatest members of Getopt:: Family? Thank you.
