    The --help message is needed for users to quickly look at all
    options before starting Emacs, and fastest way to show it to the user
    is as a static text.  After Emacs is started the user can consult
    the Emacs manual for full descriptions of all options.

Please let's not spend our time thinking about dynamic
options lists in Emacs.  It simply isn't worth the time
we'd spend on the discussion, let alone the time to implement
it or to maintain it in the future.
