I was looking through develop.txi in the KB for some guidance on the
markup for writing command syntax.  I'm still not sure about the markup
for grouped options and accumulating options (e.g., verbosity).

Something like this?

@command{foo} [@kbd{-?hV}]
@command{foo} [@kbd{-v}@dots{}] @kbd{-f} @var{input-file}


PS: This patch might be in order.
