 Description   

In clojure.contrib.command-line, you could specify a 'catch-all' argument at the end of your spec and all arguments after the ones that were parsed would be collected in. In tools.cli, nothing like this seems to exist.

For example, with tools.cli, there is no way to handle stuff like this: "myapp --foo bar --baz foo a b c". The last three arguments, a, b, and c will all be discarded with no way to retrieve them.

Finally, if this wasn't the right place to put this issue, I apologize. tools.cli doesn't seem to be listed as a project and you guys don't accept issues on Github, so I wasn't sure what else to do.
