You can already use "--h" as a short abreviation for "--help" since
that is a unique combination.

  $ users --h

Give that a try and please report back your comments concerning it.

The bar for adding new short options to the utilities is very high.
Also the users command doesn't have a complicated usage syntax.  In
order to add -h it would need a pretty strong justification.
Therefore I have tagged this as a wishlist and wontfix as a default
answer unless there is an opposition champion.
