I'm biased of course, but I like the approach I took with
- make the change completely automated
- leave "human editing" for a separate change
- publish the code used to make the automated change (in my case, typically
a perl one-liner)

I would do a separate automated "removed needless dashes" changeset.

This is an actual change to the behavior of this code - the maintainers of
jconsole need to approve it.  It's probably correct, but I would have left
it out of this change. If you remove it, then I approve this change.
