an extra alias/function/script is certainly nice, but
it is yet another thing to learn about and to remember.

i'd rather add "opt:" before each option.
this is an easy change.  and many people
will definitely recognize this simple patterm
in the neomuttrc and then search for it:

 man neomuttrc | grep opt:

this can certainly be mentioned in the docs,
maybe even in the neomuttrc itself. :)
