this is very cool! I've just produced help fro stlport module, for example. I
wonder if it's possible to intergrate output of help system with the html
docs we have already... there's another approach --- instruct the user to run
help system for additional help, and I'm not sure which one is best.
I've a couple of comments, though.
1. It's probably better to insert a link to
in doc.jam, so that everybody know where to look for syntax rules. If
something is not supported yet, it's better be documented.
2. We *really* need a test, no matter how simple, for the --help option.
For a motivation: the option was broken recently, and nobody noticed for a
week or even longer.
