Based on discussion on list, the UI should be:

Parameters starting with --E are stored as a string, for use by 
extensions which decide they understand them..  (technically, we do this by 
pre-parsing argv before passing it off to KCmdLineArgs)
eg:  kst --Ejs "bolocheck.js -d data.dat -fd filter.dat -f0 1121 -N 20000"
        + keep checking of kst command line parameters
        + extension parameter name space is completely isolated
        ? can extensions report parse errors of their parameters?
        + third parties can add parameters for their extensions.
        - no promise that extensions won't introduce parameter name clashes between themselves (but if they only chose to recognise special cases, this should be OK)
        - the "" bracketed parameter names seem kind of funny.
