cassandra-cli use consistant flags and improve error messages

                 Key: CASSANDRA-1565
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Tools
    Affects Versions: 0.7 beta 1
         Environment: Centos 5 using

            Reporter: Ian Rogers
            Priority: Minor

nodetool uses "-h" to specify the host to connect to but cassandra-cli uses "-host" which
is a pain to remember.

More importantly, if you do use "-h" then there's no error!  If you do this and then try to
"show keyspaces" or some such you just get an entirely accurate though confusing "not connected
to a cluster" error.

1. Make the flags consistant amongst all the tools where appropriate.

2. If you supply a flag to a tool it doesn't recognise then the tool should error immediately
and display its usage message.
