I made the choice this way:
"Oh crap! -v is taken. so which letter is most likely not taken, so I
can move on?"

So if you have any other proposal with actual reasons I'd switch in a
heart beat.
I figured the -y is good to testing and debugging, but in an ideal
world we don't
want people messing with the transport option because of automatic upgrades
as you said.

Or do you rather hint on dropping the short option at all, and just having NULL
in the field?
