Thanks for the feedback.  This was such a small change that I
implemented it right away, running checklink without arguments now
outputs the usage message.  It does also introduce an incompatible
change, namely -h no more means --html, but --help instead.  -H is now
an alias for --html.

Ok.  I re-rolled 3.9.1, with the change above and some other cosmetic
ones.  CVS is up to date and tagged, and the tarball is again at

After this is uploaded to CPAN, I will create also RPMs of it.  At that
point, I'll revise the validator installation instructions and the RPM
package, removing checklink from it to avoid conflicts.  What do you
think, should we remove the old checklink from the validator CVS tree?
