 - Drop the "enable" from --enable-foo boolean options; Meson has
boolean values, so -Denable-foo=true would read as redundant, and
-Denable-foo=false would read as contradictory. Use -Dfoo=true or
-Dfoo=false instead

I'm guilt of this, I'll fix up my projects, but before I do is there
any list of best practices? e.g. should it be

* -Dgtk_doc=true, -Dgtkdoc=true or -Ddocs=true?
* -Dintrospection=true or -Dgobject_introspection=true?
* -Dman=true or -Dman_pages=true
* -Dconsolekit=false or -DConsoleKit=false

And what about  an option about enabling Vala bindings? In libsoup I use
-Denable-vala, but if I would like to change it to -Dvala, then:

Option name vala is reserved.

or another logic one -Dvala_bindings:

Option name vala_bindings is reserved.

Any opinion?

You'll have to ask the Meson developers about this.

You could also have `generate_vapi` or `build_vapi` as options.
