If the user runs the macro with "Misc" -> "Load/exec macro", then there is no control over the registers.
Therefore, the default entry (from the beginning of macro) should be interactive mode with dialog boxes etc, and a label is to be used when calling from another macro, menu or command line and predefined settings are given. I have used this method in many of my macros.
Of course, Is_Auto_Execution could be used to override this.

At least this seems to work:
vpw -c 'Call_File(100,"Aspell.vdm","OPTIONS_DIALOG")'

Another thing about N_Option. If you set it in one call, will it be set after that in all the other macro calls after that? This might cause surprises.
