It isn't a judgment call to list only the options it supports on a given
system.  I'd think that would be clear.  If not at runtime, then
certainly when the bash binary is built, the options for the system
it will run on can be tested so the bash binary is configured for the
system it is running on.

    I was not emulating any language, nor was I writing for your
approval.  I was going for a minimal script to show the error case
in bash script.
