I think this is a documentation bug, since IMO help should print on stdout, not stderr[1].  I would expect print_usage to do likewise, but for the error to tell print_usage to write to stderr when it calls it...which is exactly what the code does.

[1] I know some unix commands print help to stderr, and this really annoys me when I pipe long help output to less....and it *still* scrolls off the screen.
