I looked at your patch again and you're proposing removing handling of --krb
but not removing it from the aliases array, so it looks like you're right and
it won't actually abort in that case. Since internally it still "knows" about
--krb, it will return a different error code and not abort. But, you should
probably document the krb entry in the aliases table in that case because it
will be defining an option that really doesn't exist.
