Actually, the TODO item is very badly worded. The idea is to get rid of
the spelling differences between postmaster and postgres options, and
then there will be no need for '-o' because you'll just say what you
want --- that is, "-o -foo" and "-foo" will be interchangeable.
Peter posted some preliminary work along this line a couple months ago,
but seems to have gotten stalled by lack of Windows testing.
