It'd be nice to be able to have groups of configuration options that are conditionally included. For instance, in a .wgetrc:

if deep {
    recursive      = on
    reclevel       = inf
    robots         = off
    html_extension = on
    convert_links  = on
    # (this command doesn't yet exist:)
    user_agent     = Mozilla

if zeta {
    protocol_directories = on
    dirstruct            = on
    limit_rate           = 512

The user could then turn groups of options on or off.

Possible syntax:

  wget --options deep,zeta
  wget --deep # Unreserved longopts activate option groups
  wget +deep +zeta  # "+" special character
