My goal was to avoid adding a bunch of separate arguments. The current
upper/lower and colons/no-colons isn't too bad. But I was thinking there might
be other formats that maybe didn't use hex or something like that we might want
to support in the future. But if we're trying to avoid flags I can just have
two booleans for the same functionality.
