I have two values that I need now if you do --longopt=value then it will
need to be for me something like:
Where ":" separates between the name and value. And ";" separates between
(Again what I have now is all ontop of --backing-store)

[BTW: "--bstype=VALUE" but "--backing-store VALUE" without the "=", so you
 can go either way]

If you have the one value then do it like that. Just specify somewhere
what are the illegal chars like you said ",".

BTW: I do not think the coma parsing in tgt will interfere here because
it will be a different case I think. (Haven't look at that code for so
