I don't see a strong reason for not to do it. But if you look closely at
the postgres binaries you'll notice some "inconsistencies" e.g.,
pg_ctl doesn't have long options, pg_config doesn't have short options,
postgres almost don't have long options. I agree that it deserves a
cleanup but I don't know if it's worth to do.
