As David said, the launch parser needs to be made to use the deserialize
code if possible. It just was never done because noone cared about it...

Keep in mind that transform functions cannot do what you want in a
correct way, because transform functions never fail, which makes them a
really bad choice for conversions from strings that users supplied on the
command line.
