unfortunately, not an option.
When i implemented my patches, i wanted to use both ways: a command
Again it's unfortunate that noone noticed it when it was committed and
now we're stuck with it.
You should think about that again. GRUB is broken regarding that and it
should be fixed anyway. Right now it seems that there is only one
command which uses GRUB_ARG_OPTION_OPTIONAL so maybe it's one of the
last chances to have a cheap fix.
Learn to use rgrep before making unsupported, easy to check claims:
./grub-core/commands/search_wrap.c:    {"set",        's',
./grub-core/loader/i386/bsd.c:    {"serial", 'h',
./grub-core/loader/i386/bsd.c:    {"serial", 'h',
Yes, you're right, I missed to make 100% sure that i checked all source
files, mea culpa. That's why i wrote "It seems that there is only one...".

BTW, I spent quite some time to investigate this issue and tried my
best, your reaction is demotivating at least. Just wanna let you know.
Sorry about that, I have a lot of things in my head right now (mostly not GRUB-related)
