I actually think you found an interesting (albeit minor) bug.
I think whenever "git" sees any word followed by "--help" and nothing else,
it blindly turns it into "git help" followed by that word. I think it
is reasonable
to expect that "git foo --help" responds with "foo: no such subcommand",
instead of "No manual entry for gitfoo".

It may not be too hard to arrange; this might be another low-hanging
fruit if somebody wants to try a patch ;-)

Thanks.
