Actually chown and chgrp do have the -h option.  But it does not do
help but other things.

For all unused options the user is directed to --help.  Therefore the
user should not be left wondering how to find the online option
listing.  Generally the standard for the GNU utilities is to use
the --help long option for the purpose of getting help.

Thanks for the suggestion, however.
