I know what you mean, for example `-p no:logging` does not work on xdist
works for some reason, and that is due to how config and parsing are
initialized. I tried to follow the implementation once while working on
something else, but couldn't figure it out and ended up giving up.

I think the first step is to actually write down the issues/actions points,
so I propose we start a tracking issue so we can at least start to list the
problems that we want to fix, and then create action points from there. Or
perhaps another media, like a page on the Wiki or a GH Project?
