iirc, KCmdLineArgs supports multiple uses of the same arg; it's just a
bit more code to handle it right. as for ugly, it only has the slight
catch that the arguement order would matter - not exactly unexpected in
that situation.
the alternative would be encoding the nesting into a single string just
like in the ini files. to be consequent, one would encode the key into
that, too:
--keypath [one][\\x5btwo\\x5d]key
now, if *that* isn't butt-ugly ...
