Indeed, I'd prefer having some "help topics" than putting this at the
end of "help -l". Probably the revisionspec are not the only thing
which are not a command, and would deserve some doc in "bzr help".
So, I'd rather see stg like
$ bzr help revisionspec
with a pointer to it in "bzr help".
Help topics could also be groups of commands, like
$ bzr help basic-commands
$ bzr help branching
At the moment, "bzr help" is too short (doesn't list pull, push and
remove for example), and "bzr help -l" is too long, so we need some
intermediate classifications of commands.
