Is the "--force-gui" option still operant or is it deprecated and being replaced with the "--gui" option?

Thank you so much for discussing this at OctConf and acting so quickly!
I appreciate all the positive feedback.

I pushed a small change with what I think is better long-term behavior.
I didn't mention "--no-gui" at all because I wanted to keep it
indefinitely as the opposite of "--gui", I think that makes sense.

Now "octave --gui --no-gui" will not start the GUI, and vice versa. I
think this better supports scripts and aliases that want to set a
default, but also allow the command line to override that default.
