[pytest-dev] command line options not working?

sigh. No, I put the command options into a configs.py file, because of
problems I encountered 5 years ago getting options to work with other
parameters, as documented here:

Two years ago I refactored to stop using the separate runner.py file, and
the comma options worked fine.

Yes, moving the options into the conftest.py file works. I don't understand
why the configs.py approach no longer works, but working code is a good
resolution ;)
