Re: [PATCH 3/7] use gnulib to print --help and --version

    Maybe the question is if the use of gnulib module version-etc-fsf
    should be recommended or not. 

FWIW, I don't use it, even though I maintain a FSF-copyrighted packages
(Texinfo), because when I tried it wanted to force too much on me --
sorry, don't recall specifics now.  That is why I didn't use it in
Hello, either.

Also, most (purely numerically speaking) GNU packages are not
copyright FSF.

    I am in favor recommending unified look & style of --help

Sure, but I am also in favor of not redundantly specifying program

Anyway, whatever.  I don't feel that strongly about it.
