Ahhh, nice place to hide some information.  Users only have to

I think that's called hidden in plain sight.

I would not call it intuitive that you should grep for configure-index
if you are seeking for a command line option and even if you would
find this file you will also have to fiddle around with the small note

  Scope notation must be used if an option is specified on the command line with -o.

how to actually use it.  This is far away from being intuitive (or my
intuition is terribly broken - that's why I'm verifying here whether
it is worth a bug report).

So I stick to my "perfectly hidden" statement.  Other arguments?

Kind regards
