oh, thanks for reminding Pekka! I rebased them with master and put here:


the patches are:
   parser: be more picky for integer values
   compositor: fix option types
   compositor: dump command line options

For the first there, Kristian was reluctant a bit and mentioned that 
it's a lot of code for not much usage. So those functions would be more 
useful and valuable if we could use them in config-parser.c as well. I'm 
okay with that; we can do it.

Kristian opposed the second patch. He claimed that what matters isn't 
what values an option may or may not take, but what the c type that 
stores the value is. So the type of the option is not a check that the 
values makes sense. I agree, but I think we should rework a bit then the 
weston_option_type emum, probably removing 

Then, the third patch I guess no one objected it. It's simple and does 
what intended. But you didn't give your r-b either there, so :)

What do you think? Can you please comment now so I can make the right 
fixes accordingly?
