Quoting Jeme (jeme at rkdpp.com):
> Let's say we sell workbenches. We have 4 styles of bench in 4 colors.
> Each table comes with a cover in one of 30 colors (customer's choice).
> They each come with a choice of 2 types of rolling casters in one of

> model which comes with rubber feet, but can be given casters for an

This is exactly what Simple options are for. You can have as many
