Allow optional thorns in the thorn list

Some thorns are not available everywhere, yet we want to provide a single thorn list for all systems. We discussed the following mechanism:

  • There is a way to indicate optional thorns in the thorn list, e.g. via a prefix "!OPTIONAL". These thorns are disabled by default.
  • There is a way to enable these thorns in the option list. The option list is a good place for this since it is already machine specific. This mechanism should mesh nicely with how options for that thorn are specified.
  • These specifications in the option list are interpreted by Cactus (not Simfactory), and modify the thorn list before it is interpreted (by Cactus).
