Ok, I will comply to your requirement even though it is not in 'guideline, documentation or from maintainer'. Humbly requesting to update documentation and guideline suggesting the same. This will also help others to submit patches according the new guideline. Once reflected it will be justified for sending a v8.

Following are the reasons for using stub function from v1 onwards till v7
1. Without the dummy function there are compiler warnings for unused variables.
2. It is logical to have stub functions for the new parse option being added in one go.

These are based on the suggestion from the maintainer.

> And please consider the option parsing is part of the feature.
As mentioned above please find the reasoning stated for patches from v1 to v7.
