> PhoenixRuntime (the class that is run via the "psql" command) does its own custom command-line
parameter parsing, which has a number of limitations. One of the biggest issues is that it
depends on the ordering of named parameters vs unnamed (i.e. file parameters), and starts
performing actions as part of the command-line parameter parsing. This can lead to some files
being run/imported, and then the tool stopping with an error due to an unexpected command-line
> An additional (but probably less important) issue is that the current parameter parsing
is difficult to debug and test (there are currently no automated tests).
