I am not sure how documentation should be handled. I am tending to a
master XML file which can be translated into '... --help' output,
man-pages or DocBook XML or ...

Current way which reformates the '--help' output is not very clever: it
introduces redundancy, does not provide additional information and
requires additional maintenance.

vserver-copy needs much changes as it uses still the legacy config.

Best place to report such things would be the bugtracker at savannah.
