Yes, it looks like this:

~ > hg help | head
Mercurial Distributed SCM

list of commands (use "hg help -v" to show aliases and global options):

 add          add the specified files on the next commit
 addremove    add all new files, delete all missing files
 annotate     show changeset information per file line
 bisect      [hgext/hbisect] dichotomic search in the DAG of changesets
 bundle       create a changegroup file
 cat          output the latest or given revisions of files

Also just now I realized that I do not know a way to
get help on global options of bzr, e.g. --no-plugins,
--no-aliases, ...

Cheers Robert
