The CLI Usage is more than misleading, it's wrong.

In the and ant example the following is given for the '-buildfile' argument:
Option buildfile = OptionBuilder.withArgName( "file" )
                                .hasArg()
                                .withDescription(  "use given buildfile" )
                                .create( "buildfile");

The problem is .create(String) is a char value so it will only see the 'b'. This puts the
Options in a 
inconsistent state where passing '-buildfile' will result in "Unrecognized option '-b'" and
the 
HelpFormater will still read "-buildfile <file>". It appears it is not possible to match
ants short forms of 
options because CLI only supports single character short forms.
