The fault begins in `sub process_arguments()` where the `GetOptions()` call does not specify -W or -C.  I made a trivial patch here to include them that seemed to work, but I didn't extensively test if these thresholds were properly tested.

I'm not even sure this feature works properly or as advertised. The help
output would have to be changed anyway because --Warning is the same as
- --warning (so using the -- format does actually nothing)!

I would have to look deeper at it... The related code block looks for
preprocessed messages.
