Basically, finishing the interface (see also ticket 104) is one of the
things holding back flashrom 1.0, and instead of waiting another 6
months to get 1.0 done, I thought we'd simply release the current tree,
then restart development. Renaming these options is not that simple
because the underlying internal infrastructure needs to be changed as
well. Such patches are definitely not 0.9.0 material.
