-xl()- is being taken as -xlabel()-. This does contradict the
documentation.

I am wondering why the abbreviation -xl- does not work for -xline- but
-xli-
does, contrary to what -h added_line_options- says:

sysuse auto, clear
su mpg, mean
loc mean `r(mean)'

hist mpg, xl(`mean') name(hist1, replace) nodraw
hist mpg, xli(`mean') name(hist2, replace) nodraw
hist mpg, xline(`mean') name(hist3, replace) nodraw

gr combine hist1 hist2 hist3, rows(1)
