--- Comment #1 from Alexander V. Chernikov <melifaro@FreeBSD.org> ---
I agree it would be nice to see the indented options, when looking in the
long-list capabilities in a small shell window.
Unfortunately, I don't see how it can be implemented in a compatible fashion.
Tons of scripts assume ifconfig(8) has specific output format and splitting
options flag into multiple lines would cause the breakage for some users.

Given I don't see any reasonable way forward, I'll probably have to close it in
a ~week timeframe. Please do reply if you can think of any way that would
improve the visual representation while preserving compatibility.
