Wow. busybox's version doesn't have any of that, and neither does zsh's.
debian's debianutils version only has -a.
Very fancy. I can't imagine ever wanting most of those features - which
is meant to show you which command is being run, to skipping aliases and
parts of your $PATH doesn't seem very useful.
Anyway, thanks for the info.
