[Nmh-workers] "-help" arguments

I observe that, ignoring all lines not beginning with exactly two ' '
characters, the outputs of nmh's commands' -help, seem to be extremely
regular and simple.

I wonder if, for 1.7, that simple syntax and semantics could be guaranteed?
That way, it would be possible for *proc commands to be always uptodate.
They would only have to parse the -help output.

This would probably require no code changes -- just a line or three in the
mh-profile man page.
