There's no redundancy here (short options aren't currently specified
in the long options array), but I suppose we could easily shoehorn
short options into the long options structure by assuming that any
option with a single-character name is a short option.

(Just to be clear, short options and long options are specified
differently on the command line. "-abc" is three short options,
unless -a or -b takes an argument; "--abc" is one long option.)

Nope. (I designed the interface, and paid no attention to the planned
implementation.)
