Ahh the endless number of debates I have seen on the above question... Its 
almost as bad as vi vs emacs :)

It actually doesn't matter either way works.  The scsi-add is from the 6.X
days.  I think they figured it would look better without the '-'.  
Currently either way works.  If the man page specifies without the '-' go
with that because they might be working their way towards that.

If it doesn't work... try the other way :)
