Speaking of usage (reusing this thread just to annoy Solar ;-)

$ ../run/john --list=options  
Subsections of [options]:

$ ../run/john --list=options:opencl
Section [options:opencl] not found.
help[:WHAT], subformats, inc-modes, rules, externals, ext-filters,
ext-filters-only, ext-modes, build-info, hidden-options, encodings,
formats, format-details, format-all-details, format-methods[:WHICH],
sections, parameters:SECTION, list-data:SECTION,
<conf section name>

The latter is a bug, no? Or how was this supposed to work? This behavior was seen before the move too.
