$ tla register-archive -H
change an archive location registration
usage: tla register-archive [options] [archive] location

  -h, --help     Display a help message and exit.
  -H             Display a verbose help message and exit.
  -V, --version  Display a release identifier string
                 and exit.
  -f, --force    overwrite existing location
  -d, --delete   delete archive registration

Record the location of ARCHIVE.

In the above, it would be clearer if [archive] were changed to [ARCHIVE]
or perhaps ARCHIVE were changed to [archive].  I do a sort of variable
substitution in my head, and the fact that the "variables" are not the
same is repeatedly causing me to do a double take, and cross check
carefully to see if I missed something.

I find this distracting/ annoying.
