Documentation: explain optional arguments better
Improve the documentation of commands taking optional arguments in two ways: * Documents the behavior of '-O' (for grep) and '-S' (for commands creating commits) when used without the optional argument. * Document the syntax of these options. For the second point, the behavior is documented in gitcli(7), but it is easy for users to miss, and hard for the same user to understand why e.g. "git status -u no" does not work. Document this explicitly in the documentation of each short option having an optional argument: they are the most error prone since there is no '=' sign between the option and its argument.
