Ah, OK.  I had forgotten.  Here is the new output:

        $ sql test
        psql (8.4devel)   Type "help" for help.
        test=> help
        You are using psql, the command-line interface to PostgreSQL.
                \h or \help for SQL help
                \? for psql help
                \q to quit psql

                \copyright to view the copyright
        test=> \?
          \copyright     show PostgreSQL usage and distribution terms
          \g [FILE] or ; send query buffer to server (and results to file or 
          \h [NAME]      help on syntax of SQL commands, * for all commands
          \q             quit psql

        Query Buffer
          \e [FILE]      edit the query buffer (or file) with external editor

I moved '\g' up into the "General" section rather than make it a
single-entry section.
