Getopt::Chain::Declare - Syntactic sugar for command-line processing like svn and git

SYNPOSIS ^

    package My::Command;

    use Getopt::Chain::Declare;

    rewrite qr/^\?(.*)/ => sub { "help ".($1||'') };

    # NOTE: Rewriting applies to the command sequence, NOT options

    # my-command about ... --> my-command help about

    on help => undef, sub {
        my $context = shift;

        # Do help stuff ...
        # First argument is undef because help
