That's what I wanted to do initially, but then I thought that this
would make help output too copious.  Perhaps the best way would be
to output a short list of available formats (without docstrings) with
--help, and let the user obtain more verbose help on each format with
--format=help. What do you think?

Yes, sure. But I planned to do that after I'm finished with the
modifications (I've got some unfinished improvements of format
engine in my local tree).

OK, thanks.
