Whoops, I meant $opts and opts, not config and opts. Do away with the
global, and have one hash that contains global and subcommand options.
Config can stay as it is. (It's a ModelObject because that allows us to
interactively create it when needs be.)

I think that for subcommand arguments, we want to construct a
Trollop::Parser of our own anyways, since we probably want to handle
things like HelpNeeded and VersionNeeded specially. Not sure.

I kinda forget where I was going with the parameters to
Trollop::options. Doesn't look like they're used. If that's really true,
it could just take a single argument that defaults to ARGV instead.
