r=me if you shorten the switch name to just "Tools/Scripts/webkitpy/port/base_unittest.py".

> Tools/Scripts/webkitpy/layout_tests/run_webkit_tests.py:212
> +        optparse.make_option("--override-layout-tests-directory", action="store", default=None,
> +            help="Override the default layout test directory.", dest="layout_tests_dir")

Let's remove "override-" from "--layout-tests-directory".  You're implicitly overriding it by specifying a different directory, so no need for extra typing.
