Hmm, I thought we had a lot more than three that were like this.
But on looking closer, I guess all the other ones are \pset boolean
options that already behave properly.

Actually, \a and \H are fairly bogus anyway, because they are "toggling"
a setting that has more than two values.  I wonder whether defining the
argument as a boolean is really very sane.  Perhaps it would be better to
take the argument if given as just a regular format setting --- ie,
with an argument, either of these would just be a shorthand for
\pset format.
