You are almost correct, but you need to realize that I generate
that long "case -s|--s|--so|--som|..." chain using a script that
takes all potential option names as its arguments, and makes
case arms that contain only unambiguous ones, so that I can
handle --some-long-option and --some-other-long-option sensibly.

Also you forgot to grok --some-option-with-args=* in your
version ;-).
