Great! Glad they were of interest.

Yes, I think my aversion for being thrown into the full manual with
git foo --help is quite unusual, so this one's probably better left
as one of my idiosyncratic local patches.

The reason I thought there was a chance this could be of wider interest is
that, on a machine without man pages,

  $ git show --help
  warning: failed to exec 'man': No such file or directory
  fatal: no man viewer handled the request

is a bit unfriendly when git actually has enough internal help to be able to

  $ git show -h    
  usage: git log [<options>] [<since>..<until>] [[--] <path>...]
     or: git show [options] <object>...

...but only if you know that -h exists and is not a synonym for --help.
