My preference is for positive-logic switches in general.  The place
where I would use this patch would lend itself to being more options if
--omit-xxxx were used.  I expect that would hold true for most people.
It would be:

  --omit-data --omit-post-load
  --omit-pre-load --omit-post-load
  --omit-pre-load --omit-data



Point being that I'd be dumping these into seperate files where I could
more easily manipulate the pre-load or post-load files.  I'd still want
pre/post load to be seperate though since this would be used in cases
where there's alot of data (hence the reason for the split) and putting
pre and post together and running them before data would slow things
down quite a bit.

Are there use cases for just --omit-post-load or --omit-pre-load?
Probably, but I just don't see any situation where I'd use them like
