I looked through the webrev and I think it looks very good.
I mostly agree with your argument that this is a new tool and that we
should be consistent with GNU-style options. So what was the final bid
is, is it --classpath or --class-path? I guess it wouldn't do any harm
to silently supporting -cp and -classpath as folks used to java* tools
will probably use them without thinking.
One other thing is that jdk.properties is a bit out of date. That's not
important of course as it will eventually go away.
