5.5.7 has plugin authentification support, and client programs now have --plugin-dir and --default-auth support. However, in the --help message, they appear at the end of the option list, not in lexical order where a user expects to find them.

A cosmetic problem, but proper ordering would make the options a little easier to use.

How to repeat:
By inspection of mysql --help output.
