If one were to pay close attention to the different -o options cited,
one would notice that one only affects archive creation, while the
other only affects archive extraction.
Thus, these two features are not, strictly speaking, in conflict, and
can thus share the same option letter in the interests of maximal
backwards and standards compatibility.
