Oh, we all focused on “-debug is not recognized as --debug” and forgot that the bug report also said “optparse does not complain when -debug is specified” (not sure if that meant “added” or “given on the command line”). We have to check if the bug still applies on 2.6, 2.7, 3.1 and 3.2.

stage: committed/rejected -> unit test needed
