Well, you can ask the developers for the reason. I remember stumbling
across it myself at one point. However, I also remember there was a
fairly sensible reason for that. -dash calling is meant for
initialisation so in a sense you can think of it as belonging to the
init. It is, after all, the method used for initialising parameters.
