Note also the -h gives the URL for the documentation page on it. I suppose I
should patent that <g>, considering the recent spate of crazy patents.

Maybe. :)

To be serious for a mo, I still think you should have double sentries on all
your
exes, such that -? also works, in addition to any that support -h. Sure, it's a
redundancy, but it's important to get the program to yield its help so one can
then see what the options are.

That's a good idea.
