Subject How important is consistency in command line util options?

How important is consistency in options for Python command line utilities?

I'm thinking particularly of consistent syntax for options that are 
supported in more than one utility. We use some options quite 
consistently, e.g. --durable always means the same thing.

Broker addresses are specified in various ways:

-a
--broker-addr
--broker-address
a positional argument

Timeout can usually be specified as "-t" or "--timeout", but in 
qpid-route, "-t" means "transport".

Should we care about this?

Jonathan
