clonezilla should generate ocs-sr command with long options or both:
E.g. /opt/drbl/sbin/ocs-sr -q2 -c -j2 -z1 -i 2000 -sc -p true saveparts 2011-04-30-15-img sda1 should be
/opt/drbl/sbin/ocs-sr --use-partclone --confirm --clone-hidden-data --gzip-compress --image-size 2000 --skip-check-restorable --postaction true saveparts 2011-04-30-15-img sda1
A command with long options is more self explaining, less cryptic than a command with short options.

    I still prefer the short one, and if you like you can map that with the output of "ocs-sr --help".
    Anyway, maybe in the future we might add this...

    Perhaps it can be added as a comment above the command with short options.
