Really? I thought it was cute, like -v -v -v, say :)

What would you suggest?

Originally I implemented (locally) this as a -o option and the option
name was horrible, "WaitForPortOpenBeforeFork", because I couldn't think
of a very short, yet very descriptive option name for this feature.

So after much thought -f -f seemed like the easiest way to add this
without polluting the option namespace and without requiring some
longish option name.
