Is it interesting to know if people expect -h to work as a --help equivalent by default?

As it directly affects best practices of using Python in command line, can we run such poll on python.org? I thought that this stuff is obvious, but it appears that it is not, so I'd like to see this usability study - it will be interesting for the Python community to know itself better.

I hate typing "-h" only to find that just "--help" works.

I'm pretty sure it's obvious and standard. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Command-line_interface#Built-in_usage_help
