Done. cl65 does now support passing options directly to the assembler and
linker. The feature shouldn't be used for options supported directly be cl65,
since the arguments passed using -Wa and -Wl aren't parsed by cl65, so they
may interfere with the defaults. For example when using

        cl65 -Wa -t,atari foo.s

the assembler is actually called as

        ca65 -t atari -t c64 foo.s

because the c64 target is the default, and cl65 doesn't parse the options
passed with -Wa, so it doesn't know that a target was already passed to the
assembler. The same is true for linker options and -Wl.

gcc aficionados please note that usage differs from usage in gcc: gcc needs a
trailing comma before any option, while cc65 does not.

gcc syntax:     -Wl,opt,opt
cc65 syntax:    -Wl opt,opt
