Subject: DOCBOOK: Re: cmdsynopsis + arg Vs command, option

/ davidw@dedasys.com (David N. Welton) was heard to say:
| I wanted to ask after something that's been bugging me for a while.
| To wit, that in most places, one needs to use
| <option><optional>foo<optional><option>
| whereas in cmdsynopsis, one uses
| <arg choice="opt">...</arg>
| It would be nice to have one, consistent way of describing
| options/arguments to a command, both inside and outside of
| cmdsynopsis.  This has been confusing for some of the people I'm
| working with on a documentation project.

Good point. Put this in an RFE for me, please?

| Or am I just not understanding some aspect of the current design?

No, I don't think so.

                                        Be seeing you,
