Oh, no OPT_BOOLEAN was deprecated because too many people rightfully
thought it was about 0/1 choice and got burned by its count-up
behaviour.  When you want to count-up, OPT_COUNTUP is the right
thing to do and replacing deprecated BOOLEAN with it is a correct
thing to do.  But for this optoin, I do not think you want to count
up in the first place.  You want a 0/1 choice, which is written as
OPT_BOOL these days.
