That was what I was thinking too. I can think of ways to reimplement
-o options so that they work safely ... but is it worth the trouble?
AFAICS, -o options confuse both people and machines, and have no
redeeming value beyond supporting old startup scripts. Which could
easily be updated.
Some judicious feature removal may be the best path here.
