Hi Joshua,

this patch applies cleanly but I have a problem.  What I don't get is
the reasoning for introducing the --examples option.  From my point
of view that output should still be a part of --help.  Probably the
short form w/o that stuff in case of a getfacl w/o args or with
wrong args and the long form incuding the examples when -h/--help
is given on the command line.  The --examples is somewhat unnatural
IMHO.  Would you mind to change that?

I'm sorry that this comes so late, I haven't seen that yesterday.
