I think this would be fine, provided the output changes are audited to
make sure they make sense.

Or, rewording the ones that don't currently make sense would also be
fine.

I tend to think the whole first line could be printed.  I wouldn't mind
a style where the first line is a summary, followed by the usage,
followed by lengthier text.  Eventually I may want to add a "usage"
command to extract just this info.
