The patch works well for me, although the script-args-file option does not show up in the usage information.
I guess the printusage function has to be patched, in order to show it.

I read through the whole thread again and Toni brought up some interesting stuff with being able to use profiles. Maybe that's something completely different though and I'm not sure how it would work, but I guess it could be nice to have say a debug profile that specifies a bunch of debug arguments to nmap and scripts. Another profile could be os-specific grouping a bunch of typical linux/windows scripts and their proper arguments together. There could also be a default profile that always set's a bunch of options.

Patrik,

It's not quite the same, but if you are using bash, my tab completion script[1] supports "preferences"- values for options that require arguments, like --script-args or -g, can be tab-completed from a file in ~/.nmap. The same mechanism could be hacked to tab-complete common groups of arguments, but it wouldn't be portable.
