Given we already have three topics for --help and I can see others I
went with my --help= proposal.

I integrated all those ontop of your help-variables-12.patch.

Then I:
* re-added psql -i which you, probably accidentally, removed
* rephrased the sgml stuff
* removed the "Report bugs to " from helpVariables()
* Changed things so that both --help and \? support "commands",
"options" and "variables" as help topics
* fixed things so that --help=wrongoption returns a proper exit code

I attached both the full and the incremental diff. I'd appreciate
somebody looking over the the docs...

I plan to push this soon.
