As we discussed, I changed this to:

	args = merge(args, ini_config)

since the command line arguments should have priority over the values
defined in the configuration file, like any other Unix tool does.

However, this doesn't seem to work: since the docopt documentation says
that ninstances default value is 1 when no value is defined, I believe
'args' contains a value of 1 for ninstances, and it doesn't fall back
to using the value defined in the configuration file.

Do you see a way of fixing this?
