heroku client thinks

$ heroku create -stack cedar

means "create an app called cedar on the tack stack". That is clearly very confusing to users, as seen here:

Can we disambiguate?

Agreed, I will try to figure out something to help clear this up. But with error parsing and handling as it is, it is (unfortunately) not 100% clear what the best way to tackle this is. I'll see about cooking something up soon.

We fixed it by changing the default stack to Cedar. Now you don't have to type -s anymore. (After all, when was the last time you did?)

(More realistically, I think this may be unfixable... it's a nature of arg parsing. The only thing we could do would be to provide a more helpful error message.)
