My point here is: is there anything wrong with that?

I understand why you want e.g. "zpool --help" to use dashes, but is it
necessary to use them everywhere?

I'm also unsure if upstream will want to use \(hy for hyphens instead
of -. It looks like a very personal matter of choice.

I think it would be best if you discussed this with upstream, to see
if your patch can be merged there as-is or might need readjustments.
