mysqld --help now produces just a short message:

Usage: ./mysqld [OPTIONS]

For more help options (several pages), use mysqld --verbose --help

And indeed, "mysqld --verbose --help" does produce the long message.
However, "mysqld --help --verbose" produces only the short message.
It would be nice for those of us with poor memories if --help --verbose
and --verbose --help had the same effect.

How to repeat:
Run the commands shown above.
