It was announced in 
http://www.openwall.com/lists/john-users/2014/03/30/5 ;-)

I really couldn't think of any better option names short of picking 
silly and unintuitive ones.

Attacking it from a different angle, we could add some notion of options 
being "abbreviatable or not" so eg. --input-encoding has to be spelled 
out fully [or tab completed from "-in"].
