I even do not like to have so many different version of the same thing
:-) and for command line options my personal opinion is that eiffelish
names are not the best practice, we should stick to what is normal on
the command line. -> I would be fine to remove the _ and -xxxx options
from the command line help. One release later we could then issue a
warning that the old names are obsolete and again 1-2 releases later I
would be fine to get rid of these multiple options...
