Perhaps the RIRs could get together and agree on a common whois syntax so 
that when I check one RIR with one syntax - it would work on others as 
well?  This issue has been around for over 7 years and I can't understand 
why the RIRs can't find common ground for the sake of the end users?  Even 
if ARIN or APNIC won't accept "-B -G", then at least let their whois engine 
just ignore those extra parameters it doesn't understand.  To me it looks 
like minor software changes.
