[PATCH 0/5] (4th attempt) CMD command line parsing

This is my 4th attempt at fixing the cmd command line treatment.
All patches pass the cmd tests with 0 errors both under wine and
on the Test Bot, including NT. Whitespace issues are fixed, too.
Apart from that, the code is the same as before.

The size of my patches has been criticized - only patch 2/5 is
really big, but it has to be that way to pass the tests.

This will also be my last attempt to get this merged. 
If the patches don't get applied this time, I hope that 
the cmd Gurus (Frederic or Dan) will take up the bits they
like and get them in over time. If there are any technical issues
or bugs in my code, I'll of course take care (please email me
privately, as I'm not monitoring wine-devel). 

A private side note: I estimate that I have spent at least 10x more
effort and time to get the tests right and the patches
submission-ready than I spent on fixing the actual Wine code. I believe
this project needs to think over its policies. I fully understand
that a project this big needs to take a lot of care to maintain
qualitiy standards. But the way this is currently working is
discouraging and frustrating for casual contributors like myself.

  cmd/tests: add tests for command line parsing
