Two things come to mind.

The first I don't know whether you have that on your list already: the
ability to change the prefixes ('-', '--') and the long argument separator
('='). Of course not specific to a single argument, but for all.

The second part is less output specific, but more DRY: a way to convert the
option list to TConsoleApplication's argument handling so that one doesn't
have to declare that twice.
