It should have stated "like get, but unlike get, it does not fail
when there are multiple values for the key", but the documentation
was written with that specific knowledge that "--get" has a logic to
make it fail when there are ambiguities, and wanted to stress that
difference.  It forgot to mention their similarity explicitly and
relied on "Like get" part to mean (1) shows the value(s) given to
the key, and (2) it is an error if there is no such key defined.
