There is no need to rewrite everything at once... Just disable argument
parsing for all commands and convert (and test them) step by step.
It took me 3 days to fully convert Circle to new system and catch all bugs
that appeared.
And about stability... many bugs gone, because parsing is done by one bug-free
function, not 100 ACMDs.
