I think that would be confusing to have it all, but:

  1. The -sVARIABLE=setting is not used in V2, at least I never used it.
  2. --bboption=value is used only in help system.
So, the commonly used options are

   -jamoption --bboption feature=value

and -jamoption are used mostly for -d* options. Maybe, we can add --options
for all -joption, i.e, if we have


we can add


with the same effect. Do you think that will improve things?
