No. Flags, etc. expect two leading '-', as is traditional for non
single-character command-line flags. Since there are many documents,
and even books, that have `ipython -pylab`, it will probably be many
years before we actually let that raise an error, rather than warning
and transforming it into the expected form.

We do our best, but there are certainly many holes in the
documentation, particularly with respect to configuration.

Let us know how it goes.
