Hmm, why are we checking for it at all? I see no reason to treat it
differently from any other unknown option, and I *just* removed the
undocumented --usage variant from vercmp as I think [-h|--help] is more
than enough for everyone and everything.

Can we just remove '-?' altogether? We don't use it anywhere else,
--help is pretty standard, and I feel like '-?' will just be confusing
and possibly too Windows'y to boot.
