pluto: no code change. just sort the getopt options
These were intentionally in a logical order (grouping). Definitely
not alphabetical. This remains in the comment:
* The table should be ordered to maximize the clarity of --help.
If you changed the order, I hope you carefully fixed where the
linebreaks appear. As explained in the comment, a '>' after the
'\0' causes a linebreak in the --help output.
Perhaps the original structure makes less sense now the collection has
grown so vast.
Perhaps people who added or removed options didn't bother maintaining
these secondary properties.
This change makes me sad.
