isn't an error as such, because we leave all that to the application,
but by analogy with passing options to steps, where a with-option with
no corresponding option is an error, shouldn't I expect at least a
warning when I misspell an optional option on the command line?  Or
does it get automagically converted into a parameter and then
disappear?

I'm using Calabash.
