Thanks!  I was planning to do that, or hoping someone would do it.

We could enhance this a bit:

 - also generate HTML 

 - put the introductory material into a text file rather than
   hardcoded into the program

   I'd like to have "bzr help introduction" show some of this.

 - Include sub-sections for each command showing its syntax and options, 
   as generated by the help command.

I just merged it from your http server using aaron's new remote-merge
-- a great milestone!
