OK, it was a bit of a bizarre question I suppose....   The way I asked it 

Let's try again, regardless of whether anything is (attempting to) use the
script the way the doc says can be done (which doesn't work, and so most
likely nothing is doing it), should we make the implementation match the
documentation (whjich means a non-standard option mechanism, that
can't be parsed trivially by getopt or getopts) or should we just change
the doc to match the current behaviour of the script?
