The alternative would be to group them by function, such as putting

which affect how the content is scanned (-f, etc), information
visibility (various -hide and -hidden options), and rename options

Where would you like me to insert the description of
the new options?
A while ago, I did try to have the options in alphabetical order.
This seems to be the best when a command as soooo many options.
Functional grouping makes it faster to find things if you are looking
for "a way to keep long filenames" or something like that, alphabetical
is easier if you know the option and want to check what it does.
Both have advantages, this is just a comment and not a complaint.
