Chassis/Proxy should have short names for often used options

Registered by Kay Roepke on 2009-01-16

The current command line options are only available in their long form, causing command line invocations to be extremely long, especially for lots of backends.

We need to identify the most often used options for command line use and assign sensible and unique single letter names to them.
Part of this is to check what happens when two or more plugins specify the same short name.

Sprints

Whiteboard

Notes:

* Passing the same option two or more times results in the the proxy only using the value for the last option.

$./bin/mysql-proxy --log-file=a.log --log-file=b.log

will result in a log file called b.log

this also applies to --proxy-address and others

See https://code.launchpad.net/~diego-fmpwizard/mysql-proxy/short-options for the branch.
