I just remembered an annoying experience I once had,

Wanted to know cli version asap (due to some bug introduced in a certain version):

-v (output: view --help for command)
--version (output: view --help for command)
--help (revealed: -version)

Wanted to know it's dependency version:

-version (output: view --help for command)
--help (revealed: version)

You could call me lazy for not always typing --help first but there must be a standard for this time sensitive command.

    Yep, and for python its case sensitive [-V]
