That doesn't match the behavior I see on my machine.

baron at kanga:~$ ssh --help
usage: ssh [-1246AaCfgKkMNnqsTtVvXxY] [-b bind_address] [-c
           [-D [bind_address:]port] [-e escape_char] [-F configfile]
           [-i identity_file] [-L [bind_address:]port:host:hostport]
           [-l login_name] [-m mac_spec] [-O ctl_cmd] [-o option] [-p
           [-R [bind_address:]port:host:hostport] [-S ctl_path]
           [-w local_tun[:remote_tun]] [user@]hostname [command]
baron at kanga:~$ scp --help
usage: scp [-1246BCpqrv] [-c cipher] [-F ssh_config] [-i identity_file]
           [-l limit] [-o ssh_option] [-P port] [-S program]
           [[user@]host1:]file1 ... [[user@]host2:]file2
baron at kanga:~$ ssh-copy-id --help
Usage: /usr/bin/ssh-copy-id [-i [identity_file]] [user@]machine

On the other hand, ssh-agent ignores --help too.

I assume the above are all just 'syntax error' responses.  But they
have the appearance of being --help responses.
