Well, technically it was NOT set by the user, so this is arguable...

As long as getOption("start") returns "ANON", I'd say the default
value handling is correct, no?

If you know that you defined "start" with a default value, there is little
point in calling isSet("start"), in fact (especially with your patch, since
then it would always return true).
