Convention, I guess. Legacy (e.g. `-nostdlib` )  and single-letter options (e.g. `-o` `-m`, `-f` ) use single dash. Long options typically use double-dash.

I guess the general idea is to avoid the ambiguity about what controls the behavior of the function. Is that the `Args`, or the `HostAction`?
Ideally I'd prefer to parse command line options once, save results somewhere we could use them and then use those flargs to control the behavior, regardless of which options were used to specify it. E.g. CUDA/HIPActionBuilder classes have these member fields:
  bool CompileHostOnly = false;
  bool CompileDeviceOnly = false;

      Arg *PartialCompilationArg = Args.getLastArg(
          options::OPT_cuda_host_only, options::OPT_cuda_device_only,
      CompileHostOnly = PartialCompilationArg &&
      CompileDeviceOnly = PartialCompilationArg &&
