the ability to have long options that only use one hyphen

           Summary: the ability to have long options that only use one
                    hyphen
           Product: Commons
           Version: 1.0 Final
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: CLI
        AssignedTo: commons-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: sonstone@cox.net


This may break some of the parsers and\or some other conventions, but I think 
it would be nice if you could have multi character options that only require 
one hyphen.  On programs that have several options, the single hyphen options 
don't seem to be very intuitive.  It would be less of an issue if you could 
hide the single hyphen options when you use the help formatter, but as it is 
now the user has to view all of these single hyphen commands that don't really 
mean much to the user.
