Parse and validate simple name/value option pairs

    Hashes are great for storing named data, but if you want more than one
    entry for a name, you have to use a list of pairs. Even then, this is
    really boring to write:

      $values = [
        foo => undef,
        bar => undef,
        baz => undef,
        xyz => { ... },

    Just look at all those undefs! Don't worry, we can get rid of those:

      $values = [
        map { $_ => undef } qw(foo bar baz),
        xyz => { ... },

    Aaaauuugh! We've saved a little typing, but now it requires thought to
    read, and thinking is even worse than typing.

    With Data::OptList, you can do this instead:

      $values = Data::OptList::mkopt([
        qw(foo bar baz),
        xyz => { ... },

    This works by assuming that any defined scalar is a name and any
    reference following a name is its value.
