Just read the other message.  I chose -i to enable it (inverse 
mergepoints, given that -b was used :p).

I agree a message every time it's used is not a good idea - that's 
reserved for things you really want to stop people using.. and is 
usually a precursor to the removal of an option - I wouldn't put it in 

I'm prepared to be persuaded on the merits of -J if you've got a good 
reason for it.  My own thinking of making nearly identical options like 
that is it doesn't work with the .cvsrc files.
