Obviously option names are completely arbitrary -- you could say
"-P relfilenode" and it'd still be 'correct', since it works as
documented.  But we try to make these options mnemotechnic when we can,
and I don't see any relation between "-o" and "relfilenode", so I
suggest picking some other letter.  There's a whole alphabet out there.

Either "-r" or "-f" works better for me than "-o".
