Yes.  You can give an option a description, like this:

// ...
uint nr_doors;
// ...
Named("doors", nr_doors, 0) ("number of doors").AddRange(1, 4);

If you do this, the user has a nice, short name to type:

--doors 2

But the description will be used in error messages ("The number of doors
must be between 1 and 4") and in auto-generated syntax summaries
("--doors <number of doors>").

No, I mean a longer description, more like documentation. Look at the help for git when using --help, it has different behavior than -h. The first one is more like a man page.
