That said, POSIX allows, and ksh already supports, the use of --help as
an option to ALL builtins. It might be nice if bash were to take a leaf
from ksh and add generic support for --help to all builtins, instead of
requiring users to remember 'help foo' as yet another item in their
arsenal alongside 'info foo', 'man foo', and 'foo --help'.
