[PATCH] Don't use "switch" to avoid confusing neophytes

From: John R. Daily <jdaily_at_progeny.com>
Date: 2003-11-06 06:07:30 CET

* appa.xml:
  The use of the word "switch" after each switch (e.g. -u switch) could
  be misconstrued to imply that the switch takes an argument. It also
  clutters up the text unnecessarily. Remove it.
