I know several people (including myself) who have been confused about -
vs. -- to start options.  I'd like to suggest the help messages
explicitly say options can start with either one.  It's stated in the
manual, but ...

Also, the index in the manual is inconsistent about this; most entries
start with -, but a few --'s remain.
