   This is not a good thing. Often people use 

./program -help | grep xxxx (for example -ts_type)

to search for a particular thing. They will often not find it because of this and assume is not there.

Note that -help prints soooo much damn stuff that wading through it all is too painful hence grep

 Any reasonable way to fix this?
