The author of the library gives this rationale: the other option parsing
libraries are one of too loosey goosey (not explicit), too big/too many deps,
or ill specified.
This library is a dependency for sshpk, a library to parse, convert,
fingerprint and use SSH keys (both public and private) in pure nodejs.
Node.js is an event-based server-side JavaScript engine.
