Yeah, why not? ;-)
I've discussed that idea before with bapt@ on IRC; there is absolutely
no reasons why we should not use now-free nice, short OPTIONS knob again.
Obviously, it will happen gradually, in a piece-meal fashion; just like
with recently introduced FOO_*_DEPENDS stuff. No one is talking about
converting all ports at once.
I personally really don't like to have two, often duplicating, lists of
OPTIONS_DEFINE and _DEFAULT, esp. given the fact that OPTIONS_DEFAULT
tends to break indentation.
