That's understandable - each additional option adds maintenance,
support and documentation costs to the command. On the other hand,
if they solve problems that have resulted in calls to support, or
customers just find really annoying, it's usually worth it.
To keep things reasonable for p4 help, that command could have an
option which would display help for less common options.
