If you look at

  bjam --v2 --help

you'll see a mix of option styles. There's


with two words separated by a hyphen, but there's also



I believe --builddir is especially heinous because, IIUC, the
official BBv2 option is --build-dir. This is making it hard for me to
give clear and straightforward getting started instructions. Can we
please settle on one convention? I prefer (by far) the versions with
the hyphens.

If there's some need to keep the un-hyphenated options for backward
compatibility, can we at least make them undocumented?
