parse-options: multi-word argh should use dash to separate words
"When you need to use space, use dash" is a strange way to say that you must not use a space. Because it is more common for the command line descriptions to use dashed-multi-words, you do not even want to use spaces in these places. Rephrase the documentation to avoid this strangeness. Fix a few existing multi-word argument help strings, i.e. - GPG key-ids given to -S/--gpg-sign are "key-id"; - Refs used for storing notes are "notes-ref"; and - Expiry timestamps given to --expire are "expiry-date". and update the corresponding documentation pages.
