I quite often use the --content-disposition command line option of wget.
It's a bit annoying to type in, but currently it seems there is no
short option for it.
Could such a short option be added?

c and d are already taken and I think also all other characters in
content disposition. So I'd like to propose to use -z or -y (just
because they're not used yet and easy to remember), but I'd be okay
with any other char.
you can shorten long command line options specifying only a prefix if it
doesn't collide with another one, in your case you can specify
--content-d (since wget has --content-on-error as well).

As well as being able to set an alias in your shell for wget

--content-disposition or even set that option in your wgetrc so it applies by 
default, which is probably what you want.
