      Description

      Cut and pasted from an email:

      -c – anyone interested, let's have a debate.

      In AS7 -c foo.xml would be a shorthand for --server-config=foo.xml

      I don't like that because:

      a) It's only a rough translation of what -c meant in AS < 7. People
      would have to read docs to figure out how to use it, so is there much
      benefit?
      b) There's no clean equivalent for domain.sh. It could be a shorthand
      for --domain-config=foo.xml but it could also be a shorthand for
      --host-config=foo.xml. So which?

      (I could be convinced to support -c=foo.xml as a shorthand for
      -server-config=foo.xml and --domain-config=foo.xml if I feel people
      understand the issues and still want it. I've had conversations with
      people about it before, but they've gotten sidetracked when other things
      came up. And I could be much more easily be convinced by a nice patch.)

      So does -c become -dc and -hc then?

      I think this also dovetails into a discussion about how do I clone an instance and start it up 3 or 4 times on a IP address. Customers have done this for sure, and I do this in labs/cookbooks?
