I'm not sure how to weight aesthetics against consistency, but
personally I much prefer the previous

    #+OPTIONS: *:t e:t ::t f:t -:t ^:t |:t

to the new possibility posted above.  In my opinion it is not as
important to be consistent with code block header arguments here as it
is to be legible.  All header arguments are full words and typically
have longer values, so they don't run into the same readability issues.
