then as soon as you need to 'advise' on something that is not config related it 
becomes akward, also ipa-config-advise is much longer to type and 'config' 
doesn't really add much.

As for the user 'man ipa-advise' will neatly explain what it will advise about, 
I think that is sufficient.
Nobody will expect 'ipa'-advise to provide info about non-ipa related stuff 

As for the actual command line options I do wonder as well why you need a 
--setup or --about option at all.

ipa-advise 'topic' is sufficient imo.

options that may make sense are things like --verbose so that you can have a 
small excerpt with the short form and a much longer text with --verbose if 
necessary. Although maybe we should just reference man pages for longer text 
and not try to create a new manpage substitute, we certainly should always 
provide all the content in man pages first.
