i have a soft spot for command line help output that lists -h as "this cruft"

@edef I forget where I saw it but I was immediately a fan:

...
-v: print the string "v1.2"
...

With phrasing adjusted to taste. The point is it saves a step and easy to implement in most cases.

What stuck with me is how it made me feel other programs were tedious in comparison.
