Actually, --bandwidth takes an argument, so this could probably be
something like:

| [[I<--bandwidth>] I<bandwidth>] }

(look at how freepages lists --cellno for comparison).

This one is fine.

Since the --bandwidth option is the only optional parameter that takes
an argument, and since we declared the modes to be mutually exclusive,
it will be identical behavior whether the user does 'blockjob $dom $path
$number' or 'blockjob $dom $path --bandwidth $number'.  I'm not sure how
best to word that here; maybe:

A I<--bandwidth number> can be used to set ...
