rpm has many negated long options such as --nosignature, --nodigest, --nodeps etc.

The commonly used style in many programs from GNU and elsewhere is to hyphenate these, as --no-signature, --no-digest, --no-deps and so on.

It would be a good idea for rpm to accept these forms as well as the ones without hyphen. (And ideally to use the --no-foo style in documentation and help messages, since it's a bit more readable, but this is a matter of opinion.)
