Er, hmmm. I'd like to be -1 until we at least hear someone who wants
(i.e., has a real-life use case for) a behavior other than the one I
described in my previous mail.

The justification is merely that we should save short options.

I'm also not sure that Mike is really +1 on this, since he posted that
before reading my mail proposing the other interpretation. Mike?

So I guess I'd just like to hear a bit more discussion. But can you
post your patch in the meantime?

The fact that no one uses -V yet is kind of revealing, I think :-).
