The documentation and the source code variously use the following to represent the $opt::roundrobin option:

  • --round-robin
  • --roundrobin
  • --round
  • --robin

My suggestion would be `--round-robin` for the long option and `--rr` for the short option, but the important thing would be consistency in the documentation, and fixing the related bug #54350 so that the behavior also matches the documentation.
