This is just the default setting and it makes sense that the default
settings are the same regardless of the kind of invocation of kramdown.

One thing which is a bug is that the documentation of the options on
the CLI is wrong since you can't pass a Ruby Symbol type to the
options handler but one has to use a String.

Another thing which is not quite a bug but unfriendly behaviour is that
setting a nil value can only be done by providing a whitespace string
like ' ' to an option - I will fix this.

You can use the following command line:

    $ kramdown <infile> --coderay-css style --coderay-line-numbers ' ' --template <template>

Noted on my TODO list. Will probably become some option like
