Description

Most keywords have their own parsing logic. There are a lot of overlaps between them, so it should be possible to unify them.

High level:
- many keywords use a comma separated list of key value pairs
- there are several keywords that take a single int
- there are several keywords taking an int or a range (dsize)
- ...

Idea here to define the major classes of keywords so we can unify the parsing. The new parsing should be done in rust (#3195 / #3317)

We'd need a ticket per class with the details.
