bugzilla-tool --help spews way too much text

Fix it to just show a short list of the commands like "git help" or "svn help" do.

One piece which is not yet implemented, is that we don't just show "common" commands, we show all commands.  I plan to do the common-only part in a separate patch.

Yes.  We definitely need to do this.
