Oh. Thats's not good.

That is probably the "correct" solution. I wanted to do something like that
initially, but I noticed that it pollutes verbose menu completion a lot:

Completing: option
--                                                                          -- start file arguments
-9                        -8                -7  -6  -5  -4  -3  -2  -1  -0  -- lorem ipsum
--abbrev                                                                    -- set minimum SHA1 display-length (for use with --abbrev-commit)
--abbrev                                                                    -- set minimum SHA1 display-length
--abbrev-commit                                                             -- show only partial prefixes of commit object names
--after                   --since                                           -- show commits more recent than given date
--all                                                                       -- show all commits from refs

So instead I went with -A. But I didn't notice that side effect above.

Using no description at least puts them at the end, but it's still ugly:

--topo-order                                    -- display commits in topological order
--unified                 -U                    -- generate diff with given lines of context
--use-mailmap                                   -- use mailmap file to map author and committer names and email
--walk-reflogs            -g                    -- walk reflog entries from most recent to oldest
--word-diff                                     -- show word diff
--word-diff-regex                               -- specify what constitutes a word
-z                                              -- use NUL termination on output
-0             -1             -2             -3             -4             -5             -6             -7             -8             -9
