I think I'd want to do this with a suffix if at all, so the output would
be like this:

    'git mergetool --tool=<tool>' may be set to one of the following:

            araxis
            gvimdiff
            gvimdiff2
            mytool      (user-defined)
            vimdiff
            vimdiff2

    The following tools are valid, but not currently available:

            bc3
            codecompare
            deltawalker
            diffuse
            ecmerge
            emerge
            kdiff3
            meld
            opendiff
            p4merge
            tkdiff
            tortoisemerge
            xxdiff

    Some of the tools listed above only work in a windowed
    environment. If run in a terminal-only session, they will fail.


Adding more sections for the user-defined tools feels like the output
would be too imposing and would make it hard to immediately identify the
valid option.
