When you escape subcommand (
cmd -- subcmd), it always becomes an external subcommand even if a built-in one matches. There wasn't a way to detect this. Now, a user can check
matches.is_present("")and that will signal its an external subcommand.
With this change, we've updated
clap_deriveto correctly populate external subcommands rather than the built-in version (and error if it didn't work out).
With all of that done, we can now remove the hack where we disable unknown argument assertions since users can correctly guard to prevent hitting it.
Because of compatibility concerns, this is all gated behind
