What about other double-letter instances like -ii?

Ah, sorry for the double post; I'd had trouble confirming that it went
up and just sent another attempt.

I am unaware of other double letter instances; it is likely that those
too should be documented in a similar way.

This is to prevent future confusion such as I had while trying to find
pacman's syntax for 'ignroe deps' (--nodeps sounds like it to me!).
Very likely any other double/+ options should be documented as well if
the effect isn't obvious (-vvv increasing verbosity is more of the
same; deps would mostly seem like an all or nothing thing).

Some people are for such change:
