Does anybody know, are there any plans on allowing "include" to be
used inside escripts?

I'm writing a small library for parsing CLI arguments. I think
specifications looks much simplier to understand,
if they a list of records:

Specs =
[
    #opt{long_name = help,
           short_name = h,
           type = boolean},
    #opt{long_name = version,
           short_name = v,
           type = boolean,
           validator = fun(_Val) -> ok end}
]

than a list of tuples:

Specs =
    [{help, [{short_name, h}, {type, boolean}]},
     {version, [{short_name, v}, {type, boolean}, {validator,
fun(_Val) -> ok end}]]

Currently the only way to specify which options to get is by using
list of tuples.
