The difference is subtle. 'darcs help optimize' no longer says
Usage: darcs optimize [OPTION]...
Usage: darcs optimize SUBCOMMAND [OPTION]...
Also, the help text for the standard command options (--help, --disable,
--list-options) is no longer displayed. This is debatable. On the one
hand these options are accepted for a naked supercommand so not listing
them is a factual ommission. On the other hand, these standard options
are boring and distract the reader from the more interesting conceptual
explanations that follow. I can easily put them back if you think they
should be listed.
