No, I mean a longer description, more like documentation. Look
at the help for git when using --help, it has different

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.
