-d actually works in all of those cases. -C is for backward compatibility. We could deprecate -C, but I'm not convinced it's necessary.

Maybe just tidying the docs/help output would help!

Well, the --help output for specific commands doesn't include the "global" options. I think that's a regression (in 1.10?); it definitely used to.

That would definitely have helped. I discovered very late that -d was global.

Yes, regression between 1.9.2 and 1.10.0 due to the fix for #166. Filed as #2233.
