In current manual page the options are listed in no particular order.
It would help if all the options were listed in alphabetical order as in other manual pages (see GNU pages etc.)

    The x11vnc options actually are listed in a particular order: they are grouped by function, e.g. X display parameters, color/visual settings, SSL, keyboard workarounds, user input tuning, etc.

    I admit the man page and -help output (the former is derived from the latter) is massive and perhaps very few have the stamina to look at it long enough to notice the grouping. However I don't think listing them alphabetically will help.
