[PATCH] Make "tg help cmd" print cmd help

Russell Steicke-2
"tg help" looked like it needed help, and stuff it needed to know
about was already in README.

Use awk to extract help information from the README file.  Store
the help files in $(PREFIX)/share/topgit.  "tg help foo" will cat
$(PREFIX)/share/topgit/tg-foo.txt.

There's certainly precedent for that already too.  (Not claiming it's
*good* precedent, mind you. :-)
