e.g. nix-env -e subversion => nix-env --uninstall subversion

The aim is to make the documention less cryptic for newcomers and the long
options are more self-documenting.

The change was made with the following script:

and sanity checked visually.

@edolstra ping: is there a chance of merging this? I'm happy to fix the merge conflicts and make other adjustments if required – I also note there has been an apparently independent similar PR (with smaller scope) recently: #1349
