Looks good to me, but there is still a little inconvenience
of multiline option descriptions, and the above won't handle
it nicely.

If people agree with the above, can I go ahead and make corresponding
changes?

OR

may be a whole generic option-formatting routine
should be created; one for all the tools? ;-)
Similar to explain_option() of Manfred,
which will handle the mulitline, padding, and other stuff?
(am being half serious here, but it could be an "option")
