Ok, so when you have (-a | -b) it means that flag choice is not

Can we avoid trying to express valid flag combos in a single line
and instead use multiple usage lines? In some cases, like in hwclock
it is not a major issue and this can be left as is.

If people are in doubt they can refer to the manpage.

My only concern is that this () pattern is not as wide-spread and
confuses people.

If others agree, we should sweep core existing core tools that use
() and rework them.
