Well, it's kind of nice to have all the usage collected together.  I feel
like I've looked something up there, but not for a while.  Does anyone else
use it?  It doesn't just run `help`, it gets the full command listing from
`help` and then runs help on each command.

It doesn't need to be updated very often.  Whether it could be automated
depends on the state of accumulo --fake.

I like having the manual as html in addition to pdf.  I'm playing around
with asciidoc to see if it supports everything we need for the manual.  It
would be much better not to have to do the latex to html process again.
