Done. Works with the patch in your last mail.

Tested and found another small issue: the "--standalone" case branch has
a superfluous "shift" which breaks parsing of later params. Please remove.
And - it seems there are some ways to misspell csih_inform: :-)
/usr/bin/tftpd-config: line 175: cish_inform: command not found
/usr/bin/tftpd-config: line 176: csih_infomr: command not found

Thanks for the hints!
Would you mind preparing a last package with the discussed changes, than
I could take over - or do you still have any TODOs?

Just let me know then when you're ready.
