#170: One-letter "shortcuts" for CLI options

 Currently I have to do "--verbose" but I want to be able to just do "-v".

 In the code I currently do this (ignoring the module name, which will be
 gone soon):

 PARAM_DOUBLE("option", "Does some stuff");

 and I want to do this:

 PARAM_DOUBLE("option", "Does some stuff", 'o');

 so that I can specify --option as -o.  I bet boost::program_options has
 support for this, so we just need to find out the easiest way to exploit
 and wrap that functionality.
