Subject Re: org.apache.geronimo.system.main.Daemon and commons-cli

I don't believe there is anything which prevents the syntax from  
being the same... except, that the '-vv' and '-v' options end up  
merging into one '-v' option, which can be specified more than one to  
increase verbosity, so the usage of '-vv' is the same, but  
technically there would be no '-vv' option, just a '-v'.
