Option -o (--other) was supported only in implementation using xargs+grep.
Although this option does not work now, it still remains in the manual.
Are you going to implement this option again?

In the former version, when option -o was specified, option -l was disregarded.
If you revive -o, please make use possible simultaneously with -l.

How is a binary file treated when option -o is specified?
In the former version, a match of the binary file had terminated global.

global: invalid grep output format. 'Binary file ./gctags/gctags.o matches'
