Ah, hm, so much for that.  Hm...  I don't quite know what to think of
this.  It does indeed improve legibility.  But the question is whether
--help should be as condensed as possible, and if the user finds it hard
to read, whether they should not just open the man page...

Then again, our --help text already has 102 lines.

Let me just think about it for a bit longer. :-)
(And see whether others have opinions.)

And I've already expressed my opinion that it is already rather long, where making it longer is not necessarily making it smarter.
