Not at all.  I'd rather not chew up a lot of option letters for this
problem, as we're running short of option letters.  So having an -N
option (with subletters) is preferable.  We just need a way to combine
this with -k.  Perhaps something like '-k3Nv,r', which would act like
-Nv -r -k3 except that the -Nv and -r options are attached only to the
-k option?  Or even (more generally) '-k3--numeric,--reverse'?
