Yes.  (I'll try to add it to es in the near future.)

Back when Byron wrote rc (and I wrote es) there was nary a command which
took '=' as its argument.  dd was the most popular, if I remember.  But,
these days, all sorts of commands take long options with = instead of
spaces as the argument separator.

Blame it on GNU.  :-)
