In the meteor authorized help, it says we can do --add or -a:

--add, -a     add an authorized user
--remove, -r  remove an authorized user
--list        list authorized users (the default)

but when we do with a -a, it says -a is an unknown option.

$ meteor authorized webdo -a peernohell
-a: unknown option.

--add works

$ meteor authorized webdo --add peernohell added peernohell

Looks like the short aliases were removed in b460fe8 but I can see no reason why - as of 6f8e18b the authorized self-tests seem to pass. Thanks @acemtp for the heads up.

With some advice from @glasser, we decided to remove the short aliases because our command option parsing makes it so that all flags have to be consistent in whether or not they are boolean. Because we might easily want to have boolean -a and -r flags for other commands (--all-, --recursive, for example), we decided to actually not add them back in for meteor authorized, which is used relatively infrequently. We removed the short aliases from the help text instead.
