That would be my one bit of feedback as well. The names of these two parameters aren’t descriptive. 

My suggestions would be:

--working-directory, -w		Change working directory before any other operation
--run-directory, -r		Change working directory before running the executable

I don’t believe there’s any reason to shorten or truncate the full parameters if you’re going to offer a single-character alias for them. 

Otherwise, top proposal! 5 stars, would review again ;)

I’m +1 for SE-0179.
