I'm having difficulty making sense of some of the advanced backup options.  It turns out that they come from mysqldump --help, which has some dated info (--extended-inserts is the *new* INSERT syntax, for example).  I opened Bug #49223 to deal with this example in mysqldump, but it would be better and more clear if the options in WB used the documentation descriptions instead of the mysqldump --help output.

How to repeat:
Look at the advanced options for backups.

Suggested fix:
Use documentation description of these options.

An entry has been added to the 5.2.16 changelog:

The descriptions used for options in the Advanced Options tab in the Data Dump section of the administrator were lacking clarity and in some cases dated.
