 Currently if you run a custom management command with --help, you will get
 output that looks like:

 I have highlighted in yellow the useful information specific to the
 command that is *not* boilerplate. Notice that most of this yellow text is
 at the end of the output, with the boilerplate dominating what the user
 reads first.

 I propose reordering the options in the output so that the useful
 information is at the *beginning* rather than the end, so that it looks
 like the following:
