I've always been a fan of this approach, starting with the help text
that you have to write anyway. I did a Rust crate lapp (after the
Penlight module) that follows this philosophy, mostly because I didn't
feel like an extra 400Kb in my exes for the more fashionable
solutions. (It is possible that I still have late 20-Century attitudes
to executable size)
