Instead of:

rdiff-backup --help
Fatal Error: Bad commandline options: option --help not recognized
See the rdiff-backup manual page for more information.

it would be nice if rdiff-backup displayed a help page of less detail than the man page, suitable for quick reference. This is a standard feature, so I don't believe any more explanation is required.
