No worry: growisofs' manpage and the way it uses command line arguments is not 
entirely consistent.... :-)

To some extent, Andy doesn't want to fully document everything to encourage 
people to either "use the source, luke", or to create more user-friendly (but 
seperate) frontends like k3b.  I don't fully understand the mindset of not 
making a program fully documented or oriented towards its users, but Andy has 
been reasonably responsive to integrating FreeBSD changes for the port, so I'm 
not going to complain...
