I'd like to ask you to change the policey to generate messages for
--help output.

The the moment final dots are added automagically.  This is somehow
confusing especially for translation purposes.  Please, treat punctation
as part of the message--you'll never know how a single language will
close a phrase.  I saw Japanese texts featuring a nice graphical circle
element (for example cf. TUTORIAL.ja coming with Emacs 21.2.50)!
