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.

Ah, I see.  Sorry for the misunderstanding.

An app could do that trivially: have a --short-help option with shortcut -h and a --help option with no shortcut, and then respond to the two switches differently. Mark the --short-help option as undocumented, and then it won't appear in an auto-generated syntax summary.
