The discussion between you and Linus since you brought this up
has kept me wondering if -ko is the only thing people may want
to do, or sometimes -kk or even -kb or -kv make sense for some
others, in which case instead of a -k option that does not allow
anything but -ko, making it take an optional single letter
o/k/b/v might might more sense.  A single -k defaulting to -ko
is fine by me if you did so, because I think that is the most
useful and usual mode of operation while converting to GIT
