No, there isn't. Plus has been the right way for years, AIUI, and
dev-ref explicitly mentions it.

There is no need to specify the bug number, since it can be extracted
from the changelog. The question is whether the option shall be --new,
so the default is to send the diff to the fixed bug(s) (my patch), or it
should be --no-open instead, thus defaulting to opening a new bug.
