    Done, but I think duplicate information is an opportunity for future 
    stale information. :-)

Sure, but it is also good to give information where people are looking
for it.  And the web page and mailing list should be stable :).

    I think <string> is better. 

Why?  It leads to confusion among novices about whether to type the <>
characters.  I've seen this countless times.  That's why using all caps
has been preferred for decades, why @var in Texinfo produces all caps,

    See `gcc --help'.

gcc is notorious for doing things their own way.  I believe essentially
every other package uses all caps.  It's obviously not a momentous
issue, but I hope you will change it.
