    doc: convert \--option to --option · 1c262bb7

    Older versions of AsciiDoc would convert the "--" in
    "--option" into an emdash. According to 565e135a
    (Documentation: quote double-dash for AsciiDoc, 2011-06-29),
    this is fixed in AsciiDoc 8.3.0. According to bf171262, we
    don't support anything older than 8.4.1 anyway, so we no
    longer need to worry about quoting.
    
    Even though this does not change the output at all, there
    are a few good reasons to drop the quoting:
    
      1. It makes the source prettier to read.
    
      2. We don't quote consistently, which may be confusing when
         reading the source.
    
      3. Asciidoctor does not like the quoting, and renders a
         literal backslash.
